Cato Alexander

Mixology may sound to the layman like a fancy word for making cocktails, but its practitioners are deadly serious about their craft. What many may not realise, however, is that the father of mixology was a former South Carolina slave by the name of Cato Alexander. Starting as a chef, Alexander saved enough money to buy his freedom and move to New York where he opened his own tavern. “Cato’s” became famous for its fancy drinks and was filled with an exclusive clientele that included Tyrone Power and William Dunlap. This is where the word “cocktail” was invented, and where a man of African descent first made bartending a sacred calling.
