...the drinks our mothers and grandmothers drank, the drinks we strive to save from extinction as a small measure of remembering those great women and their great cocktail parties.
In a post-millenium world of beer and prepackaged Chex Mix™, LUPEC works tirelessly to breed, raise, and release cocktails that are endangered or even believed to be extinct.
The original LUPEC was created in 2001 in Pittsburgh. The Denver Chapter soon followed in February 2003. LUPEC has spread quickly and has chapters all across the nation.
Besides ensuring the renewed enjoyment of classic cocktails at functions throughout the year, LUPEC Denver raises funding to support local and national organizations that look out for the health and welfare of women and children in the Denver metro area.
The collecting of anachronistic recipes by women and the resulting creation of endangered cocktails in an all woman setting is intended to achieve the following goals:

Up in ya!
