Ivy Mix, with Lynnette Marrero

Founders, Speed Rack

As the founders of Speed Rack, Ivy Mix and Lynnette Marrero have shone a spotlight on women mixologists thriving behind bars around the country—and have done so while contributing to the important cause of breast cancer research, education, and prevention. Speed Rack was established in 2011; it’s the only all-female international bartending competition. They also co-founded the Sisterhood Project, a forum for discussing issues that impact the lives of women in the hospitality industry.
