THIS GIRL WALKS INTO A BAR was founded in 2010 by sisters Jordan Catapano and Jocelyn Dunn Muhlbach. Their books, This Girl Walks Into a Bar: A Women’s Guide to Professional Bartending and Home Mixology, This Girl Minds Her P’s & Q’s: An Etiquette Handbook for Dinner Parties, Restaurants, and Bars, and Cocktails for Cougars and Cowgirls: Simple and Delicious Recipes for Every Woman provide the inspiration for their hit blog. Jordan and Jocelyn’s books are available online and in bookstores. Their blog content has lead them into work developing custom recipes and editorial contributions to magazines and online publications, and most recently helped launch their successful bartending service.
