Single AF Cocktails: Drinks for Bad B*tches
Celebrate reality television star and beloved bartender Ariana Madix’s journey from heartbreak to empowerment with 60 high-drama cocktails that are as strong and inspiring as she is.
When Ariana Madix famously discovered her partner was unfaithful, the incident—known as Scandoval—captivated audiences worldwide. She has now reclaimed her power, channeling her pain into a resounding statement of strength and resilience in Single AF Cocktails, a collection of alluring drinks that follow the trajectory of a relationship that starts beautifully but ends in disaster.
