Go Drink This: Ginger Berry Smash


The drink: Ginger Berry Smash

The price: $10

The story: At Nikki Beach, ask for a Ginger Berry Smash and dig your toes into the sand. This bright and beautiful vodka-based cocktail will keep you cool as you wonder where the past two decades went. This oceanfront compound— one of the last beacons of South Beach’s old school nightlife scene— is still buzzing despite constant change in the chic South of Fifth neighborhood. The smash combines vodka, with a zesty house-made rosemary and ginger syrup, fresh lemon juice, Creme de Mure (blackberry liqueur), and soda water in a chilled mason jar. A handful of berries and a sprig of rosemary add an extra layer of freshness to this throwback fête. 

Where to find it: Nikki Beach, 1 Ocean Dr., Miami Beach.
