A Miami Beach cocktail crawl without leaving your hotel

Photo/Fontainebleau

You don’t need to join a cocktail crawl to go on a liquored-up tasting tour of Miami.

Actually, you don’t even have to leave your hotel.

At the Fontainebleau, you can sip your way through some of Miami’s most talked-about watering holes, inspired by flavors from Japan, Italy and beyond — all without setting foot off the hotel property. Interested?

Here’s a handy guide.

1. Start at Hakkasan

Talladega Days cocktail

Try their Talladega Days, made with Corzo Tequila Silver, Cointreau, fresh pressed orange juice, pineapple juice, guava puree, filthy black cherry syrup, and an orchid for garnish. 

For something a little less on the fruity side, try the Amburana Sour, made with Avua Ambruana Cachaca, Plymouth Sloe Gin, agave, lime juice, and egg white.

If you want to nibble on something, try the Pork and Scallop Siew Long Bun.

2. Move on to Bleau Bar

The suggestion is in the cocktail’s name: Indulge in some Day Drinking. Made with Pavan Liqueur de France, Whispering Angel Rose, and lychee puree, and garnished with a mint leaf, orange slice and fresh raspberries, it’s fresh (and strong). 

If vodka’s more your spirit of choice, go with a Boardwalk Flyer, made with Russian Standard vodka, Licor 43, peach liqueur, Disaronno Amaretto, and mango and peach puree.

3. A taste of Italy: Scarpetta

The Caput Mundi blends Ciroc Coconut vodka, Yuzu juice, Licor 43 and Moscato to create a unique, grown-up version of the classic Pina Colada. 

The Vita di Luxury, on the other hand, is a delicate balance of Spring44 Gin, lime juice, hibiscus syrup, Sauternes wine, and Domain de Canton, garnished with citrus foam and a hibiscus blossom. Pair it with the Raw Yellowtail.

4. Refuel at Stripsteak

If you’re still walking straight at this point, head to Stripsteak and cap off your tour with the Perfect Hemingway Daiquiri, featuring Diplomatico Reserva Blanco Rum, Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Rum, fresh grapefruit juice, simple syrup, and a bar spoon of Luxardo Maraschino. Top it all off with an Amarena cherry and a lime wheel for garnish.

If you’ve got room for one more, La Mora is a light and citrusy must, made with Oxley Gin, lemongrass syrup, lemon juice, and a homemade blackberry thyme shrub.
