November 24, 2014 | by Carla Torres

With all the exhibits to see and parties to attend, you’re bound to need a cocktail (or five) to keep your spirits high during Miami's biggest event of the year. Here, we bring you four works of art that come in a glass in honor of Art Basel Miami Beach.

Glenlivet is a favorite among scotch drinkers and a natural pairing for a vibrant cigar like Ashton Virgin Sun Grown.
