Ivy Mix


Change Agents

With a resume that includes stints at New York City’s most celebrated cocktail establishments—Clover Club, Fort Defiance, Mayahuel, and Lani Kai—and a long list of accolades and awards, Ivy Mix is one of the most influential women working in the drinks industry. She first caught the cocktail bug while living and working in Guatemala, and the experience, along with extensive travels throughout Latin America, continue to inspire her work as co-owner and head bartender of Leyenda, the pan-Latin cocktail bar she opened with mentor Julie Reiner in Brooklyn. Eager to change the way people view women’s role in the cocktail world and to give back, Mix co-founded Speed Rack, a national competition for female bartenders that’s raised more than $800,000 for breast cancer–related charities.
