Leaning on our Miami food and drink expert Gutierrez walks us through some of his favorite cocktails in Miami.
Gutierrez hits a hidden gem here and since The Miami Heat are back in action, so is their signature drink at the FTX Arena. According to Gutierrez the “3 Point Punch” is a must-order Bacardi rum cocktail that is perfect to sip when it’s time to watch basketball!
“Hoja Taqueria’s Hoja De Maize is an old-fashioned made like no other,” exclaimed Gutierrez. Made with Montelobos Mezcal, Reposado Tequila, St. George Nola Coffee, Oaxacan Chocolate, Roasted Poblano and Chocolate Bitters this combines a plethora of flavors to make a killer cocktail.
Gutierrez thinks that Sweet Liberty’s Breakfast Martinis should be consumed on weekend mornings. The perfect cocktail with a combination Gin, Cointreau, Lemon Juice and Orange Marmalade, is the best morning wake-up!
