Miami Beach’s festive and vibrant social scene inspires a city filled with high quality, progressive mixology. While we enjoy sunshine throughout the year, the slight seasonal variations do alter the best drinks to enjoy around town throughout the year. Spring is quickly fading into the background, and we’re already prepared with this list of SoBe’s most summery cocktails.

Mexican Stand-Off at Tongue & Cheek

With delightful Latino flare, this drink combines blanco tequila, mezcal, agave, pineapple, and lime in a sweet and refreshing upscale concoction. The tequila-mezcal combo wonderfully complements the citrusy tinge of the fruits, all for a dangerously easy-to-drink balance.

House Mint Julep at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar

Embrace the heat like a Southern gentleman with the spot-on mint julep from Yardbird Southern Table & Bar. Keeping the base classy with Woodford Reserve Bourbon and cognac, Yardbird’s master bartenders add fresh mint, crushed ice, and just a bit of sugar.

The Hemingway Daiquiri at 660 Angler’s

The daiquiri part will make you feel like you’re lazing on a beach in the Caribbean, while the Hemingway part will create the appeal of sipping a real drinker’s drink. Banks 5 Rum, a sweet and tart combo of lime and grapefruit juice, and maraschino liqueur give this beverage a refreshing summer fruitiness and sumptuous candied finish.

Kale & Pineapple Caipirinha at Broken Shaker

Featured on the World’s 50 Best Bars website, the Broken Shaker is quite possibly Miami’s most impressive craft cocktail bar. Their reputation rings through this drink emulating Brazil’s national cocktail made with cachaça, lime, and brown sugar. For some leafy and refreshing flare, these creative bartenders added kale and pineapple in their spin on the classic cocktail.

Shock Treatment at Wet Willie’s

Wet Willie’s is that raunchy frozen drink destination that needs to make at least one appearance in your Miami Beach summer. Specializing in slushy concoctions with grain alcohol, Wet Willie’s gets you drunk, pure and simple. Shock Treatment is a great summer pick with lemonade, blue curacao and a healthy pour of 190-proof liquor.
