Miami-based food curator and content creator, Gio Gutierrez, also known as Mr. Chat Chow TV (@chatchowtv), knows all the best recommendations in the city. From sweet to savory, Guiterrez has the Miami food and drink scene down!
With the holidays right around the corner, we teamed up with Guiterrez to give us all the best cocktails to ring in the holiday season. Whether you’re looking to drink alongside Santa, or just feel the holiday cheer through a cocktail, these are delicious must-orders at some of Miami’s top restaurants and bars.
Miracle In Miami is one of the best Christmas bars in Miami which has pop-ups at Gramps Wynwood and The Doral Yard. Guiterrez exclaimed, “In other words, there’ll be more to sip than basic spiked eggnog!” His menu highlight is the Christmapolitan with vodka, elderflower, dry vermouth, spiced cranberry sauce, lime and rosemary.
Located in the heart of Miami Beach, Sweet Liberty is ringing in the holiday spirit with a must-order Sunday brunch cocktail. Guiterrez says, “KISS (keep it simple stupid) for Sweet Liberty’s Bloody Mary with Grey Goose & Filthy Food’s dope Bloody Mary Mix.”
Phuc Yea is bringing the fun with a rum-filled cocktail, perfect for the holidays. The Cuba Libre variation named 90 Miles, is a delicious cocktail made with house-carbonated Havana Club Añejo, Fernet Branca, Minted Cola Reduction and Quinine with a side of Maní.
This newly launched cocktail menu is a must-try and Guiterrez notes he’s obsessed with the Peach Please. This sweet cocktail is made with Peach-infused Sagamore Rye, Amaro Nonino, Antica Vermouth and Peach Bitters
Zitz Sum is one of Guiterrez’s favorite spots in Coral Gables, with absolutely delicious food and amazing low abv cocktails. Miss Bogota is his go-to order with SipJoJo Chai Tea, Coffee, Orange and Nigori.
