The drink: “Deal Closer” by Albert Trummer
The price: $15
The story: The “Deal Closer” takes the award for the wildest cocktail ingredient in Miami Beach. Horny Goat Weed, a Chinese aphrodisiac sourced from Chinatown in New York, is an ancient herb containing flavonoids that play a role in stimulating the libido. This all-natural tonic gets the blood flowing and it’s been used to restore sexual vitality in both men and women for more than 2,000 years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Try it at The Drawing Room, an apothecary-style cocktail bar, where it’s mixed with muddled cucumber and mint, Lotus vodka, lime juice infused with fresh sugarcane, and a barspoon of vanilla essence made from a secret recipe referred to as “Elixir No. 2.” If it works its magic, the glamorous bar is conveniently located inside a hotel. As if South Beach could get any sexier!
Where to find it: The Drawing Room at Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach, 1801 Collins Ave., Miami Beach.
