Angel has always been determined to spend her life behind a bar. She began bartending (illegally) at 17 in Daytona, and has worked just about every type of bar imaginable throughout Florida, California, and lately, Portland. As a professional with an intense interest in craft cocktails, she was drawn to Portland by the bar scene and fresh, locally sourced ingredients. She loves that Portland patrons are always willing to experiment and try new creations. Currently you can find her at Ataula in the Alphabet District of Portland.

She appreciates the artistry of her craft and genuinely values the relationships she creates with her clientele. In Angel’s words, “I may not be able to tell you what I wore yesterday, but I can remember a drink order from six months ago.” It was her enthusiasm that brought her to the attention of Angel’s Envy, and we’re thrilled to work with a guardian as dedicated as Angel. She genuinely loves her work and her town, and we couldn’t have found a better Portland ambassador. Angel enjoys Angel’s Envy for it’s smooth flavor and compatibility with so many cocktails. She also appreciates our brand’s hand-crafted, artisan approach to distilling.

I may not be able to tell you what I wore yesterday, but I can remember a drink order from six months ago.

In her spare time, she seeks out any and all available sun. When the Portland weather has other plans, Angel enjoys going out — eating, drinking, the usual stuff. She’s also very active in the US and Oregon Bartender’s Guilds. Angel is always researching new cocktails, bitters and looking for something new. If you’re in Portland, look for her at any Angel’s Envy event, and if you’re lucky, maybe she’ll share one of her discoveries.
