Black Mixcellence: A Comprehensive Guide to Black Mixology is an ode to Black and Brown mixologists and their contributions to the spirits and mixology industry.

Whether it was entrepreneurship, education or a “famous first,” the featured mixologists have all contributed to the industry to make an impact in their own ways. This collective of mixologists and their signature cocktails represent areas from all around the world. Each bartender featured will be accompanied by their story which details their contribution to the industry, an anecdote about some of their most interesting bartending experiences and their custom craft cocktail recipes. There will be connections to important inventions and milestone moments by African Americans in the bartending industry weaved in between their stories.
