There is no doubting that mixology is a form of art. From liquors to bitters and everything in between, there are a lot of components to consider when making the perfect cocktail.
If you love a great libation, you’re in luck. National Cocktail Day is March 24, and we can’t think of a better reason to toast to our favorite bartenders.
We’ve hand-picked a few of our favorite cocktails, each available at some of Miami’s top restaurants here at Aventura Mall – and trust us, they’re as pleasing to the eye as they are on the palate:
Estiatorio Ornos Estiatorio Ornos brings the paradise of the Greek isles to Miami. The Mykonos is a favorite among guests looking for an authentic taste of Greece. The light cocktail combines Hendrick’s gin, aperol, cucumber, lemon and Mastiha for a refreshing result. Mastiha is a sweet liquor produced with mastika resin – a material that comes from mastic trees and offers a slightly cedar-like flavor – from the Greek island of Chios. Cheers (or shall we say Opa?)!
PANI Sip, sip, hooray! What’s more fun that a bubblegum pink cocktail? PANI’s Sexytini features gin, lemon juice, cucumber and simple syrup. The Instagram-worthy drink evokes memories of Sex and the City. Whether you’re more of a Carrie or a Samantha, it’s time to grab your girlfriends for a special toast.
CVI.CHE 105 Swift like a butterfly, sting like tequila. CVI.CHE 105’s vibrant Butterfly Pea 105 cocktail is a fabulously fruity cocktail. The magenta-hued creation features butterfly pea flower-infused tequila reposado, Amara mezcal, habanero-infused agave syrup, guava puree, and lime juice. The guava blends beautifully with the habanero-infused syrup to create a sweet drink with a dash of spicy edge.
Pubbelly Sushi Mezcal and tequila lovers can rejoice at Pubbelly: the Japanese-Latin fusion restaurant never fails to bring the heat with its sushi, sake, and inventive cocktails. La Chula is a must-try drink made from 00 Conejos mezcal, Jose Cuervo tequila, ripe watermelon, jalapeño syrup, and lemon. It packs a punch you won’t soon forget.
Serafina Serafina is constantly developing unique and flavorful signature cocktails to add to its growing menu. However, one tried and true cocktail from the restaurant’s inception remains their most ordered drink: the Liquid Passion, a drink featuring vodka, aperol, passion fruit puree, and fresh lemon juice. Sip this tropical cocktail al fresco on Serafina’s outdoor patio or at the bar – when it comes to the Liquid Passion, there are no wrong decision
Tap 42 Putting a spin on the beloved aperol spritz, Tap 42 Craft Kitchen and Bar continues to flex its creativity. The refreshing Guava Spritz consists of Ketel One vodka, aperol, pink guava, fresh lemon and basil. Delicioso.
