The drink: Smoky Negroni by Sarah Lawrence
The price: $16
The story: This stirred cocktail is just as sexy as its sleek setting at the Fontainebleau’s high-end Chinese restaurant. A theatrical experiences awaits you at Hakkasan’s bar where Sarah Lawrence combines equal parts Spring44 Old Tom Gin– a small batch gin from Colorado– Carpano Antica Vermouth, and Campari in a mixing glass before stirring on ice for nearly a minute. The show continues as she strains the ingredients into a decanter and infuses smoke from two to three hickory wood chips soaked in Grand Marnier. This move is followed by the final step in which the aromatic twist on a classic aperitivo is strained into an old fashioned glass over an ice sphere with a citrus zest. The Jasmine Tea Smoked Ribs mirrors the richness and smokiness of the cocktail, according to Lawrence, and provides a perfect pairing.
Where to find it: Hakkasan at the Fontainebleau, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach.
