Pouring cocktails from a shaker.

Last week top Miami influencers gathered for Ocean Drive and The Collection's Dine + Drive event, where attendees tasted bites from South Florida hot spots, like Basil Park, Macchialina, Oak Tavern, Touché, and Mignonette—each dish complemented with a carefully selected fall cocktail courtesy of Premier Beverage and Nick Nistico, the group's corporate beverage program development specialist. The drinks were flowing as guests strolled through The Collection’s sprawling Coral Gables showrooms to visit each chef, taste each cocktail, and swoon over exotic cars. 

With a handcrafted cocktail in hand, we caught up with Nistico to find out how he came up with each simply delicious drink. He generously shared his recipes from the event so we can all take our at-home bar game to the next level and impress our cocktail-loving friends and family over the holidays. >>Read More
