Printemps, primavera, spring—however you choose to say it, the season has arrived. While weather in Miami may not change drastically from March to April, many of the city’s bartenders are heralding brand-new recipes for us to sip on for the next few weeks.
The posh cocktail lounge inside the W continually revamps its list of modern drinks based on the seasons and the bartenders’ current obsessions. The Pepper & Pine, created by Alex Emilyanovich of Belarus, mixes reposado tequila, with fresh lime, bitter artichoke, mild yellow peppers, and pineapple. The unexpected mishmash of flavors delivers a delightfully strong punch. W South Beach, 2201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305-938-3000
The undisputed winner of The Rum Line’s spring cocktail menu is the Vote for Pedro, a homage to Napoleon Dynamite’s unlikely hero and Spanish sherry. It’s a sophisticated sipper with high-end Facundo Eximo, Pedro Ximénez sherry (hello, beautiful raisins), and Jerry Thomas’ Own Decanter Bitters from The Bitter Truth, finished with a flamed orange peel. Need some more kale in your life? Ask for the Dr. Greenthumb (shown above); it’s a thoughtful twist on a margarita with Avion silver tequila, kale and cucumber juice, lime, and matcha green tea powder along with a spice-and-salt rim.
