The cocktail menu pays homage to old and new Miami think: “The Floradora” an upgraded Moscow Mule using Ketel One Botanicals Grapefruit-Rose, raspberry syrup, fresh citrus, ginger beer, and a fortified rosé aperitivo or the “Pink Panther,” a pretty in pink tropical gin sour made with Sipsmith Gin, guava-lavender syrup, Martini Bitter, bianco vermouth, fresh citrus, and egg glair.

Another sure-to-be fan favorite will be the “Vaxxxed & Waxxxed” a spicy take on the modern classic “Naked & Famous” featuring Don Julio Blanco Tequila, Vida Mezcal, thai-chili-infused Aperol, Chinola Passion Fruit liqueur, and fresh citrus juice. The menu also includes a rotating and unique wine list and as well as a selection of locally brewed craft beers.
