Female bartenders at the top of their game

8th March, 2018 by Nicola Carruthers

Ivy Mix – head bartender and co-founder of Leyenda, New York

Mix’s career with spirits started when she went to Guatemala during her freshman year at college and fell in love with a bar called Café No Sé. Intending only to remain in Central America for a few months, long enough to learn Spanish and do volunteer work, she ultimately lived there on and off for the next four years.

In 2008, she moved to New York and soon found herself behind the bar at cocktail hotspots Fort Defiance, Lani Kai, and Clover Club.

In 2015, Mix co-opened Leyenda, a pan-Latin cocktail bar in Brooklyn, where she is head bartender. Along this journey, she was named one of Zagat’s 30 Under 30 top bartenders in New York City in 2012 and Best American Bartender 2015 at Tales of the Cocktail’s Spirited Awards.
