The drink: “Walk This Way” by Elad Zvi and Gabriel Orta
The price: $10
The story: This week, Miami Beach welcomed its newest restaurant and bar to the Freehand Miami property at 2727 Indian Creek Drive after more than two years of construction, permitting, and brainstorming by the Bar Lab team in collaboration with New York-based Sydell Group. The result is a two-story venue poised to be your “home away from home.” Guests can expect attentive service at this affordable restaurant where thoughtful design creates the coziest spot for eating and imbibing with friends. It looks very Americana inside the home yet the food is inspired by diverse ethnic groups alongside Miami flavors. Local produce from farms across the tri-county area and herbs from the new rooftop garden are used in every dish and cocktail. Kick off your 27 experience at the second-floor bar with the “Walk This Way,” a charming Oloroso sherry cocktail. Sherry, an increasingly popular fortified wine from Spain, is mixed with fresh passion fruit juice, hibiscus orange water, house-made pink peppercorn syrup, and fresh lime juice. We love how it’s served over crushed ice with vibrant flowers and plenty of mint.
Where to find it: 27 Restaurant at Freehand Miami, 2727 Indian Creek Dr., Miami Beach.
