Celebrate Indigenous Wine, Beer, and Spirits this Holiday Season
Tales of the Cocktail

This year as you head home to celebrate Thanksgiving, please consider looking beyond the role Indigenous people are given in holiday mythologies. For many nations, Thankstaking is considered a day of mourning and protest while others choose to honour ancestors and celebrate resilience.  As non-Indigenous people it’s important to acknowledge why those sentiments are valid, to know the history of the people on the lands you thrive on and to be a better ally. Natives are often relegated to noble savage tropes and past-tense but we are very much here 364 other days, 11 other months a year and ..read more

Celebrating Native American Heritage Month: A Balance of Worlds
Tales of the Cocktail
by Chockie Tom

Balance is one of the essential skills that any bartender can perfect. To exist in the American drinks industry and be Indigenous has been an exercise in balance, learning, and at times a very lonely existence. We strive for more inclusive representation and to make our industry more accessible to everyone, but it’s not hard to see that the first Americans are thought of last, if at all. Until my collaboration last year with Portland Cocktail Week,  Indigenous representation has been limited to occasional articles that mention us centered around colonizer-glorifying holidays, tired spirit ..read more

Celebrating Latin Heritage Month:”Ven, te invito un trago” 
Tales of the Cocktail
by Camille Austin

(Come, Let Me Make You a Drink) There’s something about that bar that always makes you feel welcome, and the bartender that, through their hospitality, makes you feel like you’re not alone. In mid-pandemic, I moved back to Miami. The Magic City had changed so much since I left over a decade ago, but one thing has remained the same: its vibrant and unmatched latinidad. Through an exploration of my new drinking haunts, and meeting bartenders and chefs doing some really interesting things, I met Anthony Medina, a talented Venezuelan bartender who was also new to the city. I popped in to Doya and ..read more
