To continue the Whiskey-mania that is the Miami Whiskey Mash 2016, we will showcase the best whiskey cocktails in Miami and the incredible bars and bartenders that make and serve them.

This week we visit the brand new Coral Gables eatery and bar Trust & Co. (2 Aragon Ave,)  Read about the launch of this great spot HERE from the Miami New Times.

 

Trust & Co.'s creator, Jerry Flynn co-founder of local establishment Batch Gastropub, focuses the same care on the excellent food offerings to his Craft Cocktail menu.  The menu is vast and varied with plenty of whiskey options served neat or in cocktails.

 

The featured cocktail is reminiscent of a great cocktail that you would have at the 19th hole after a great (or not-so-great) round of golf in days of old.  The featured whiskey is Tin Cup, made in Colorado, is a Bourbon-style whiskey with high rye content in its mashbill.  Its spice and pepper notes work wonderfully in this cocktail.

To continue the Whiskey-mania that is the Miami Whiskey Mash 2016, we will showcase the best whiskey cocktails in Miami and the incredible bars and bartenders that make and serve them.

This week we visit Repour in the Albion Hotel(1650 James Ave, Miami Beach) for a chat with Isaac Grillo, cocktail master and bar owner.  Read about his launch of this great spot a year ago HERE as we approach the one year anniversary of this great South Beach hangout.

 

Even though Isaac Grillo, is the Head Mixologist for Afrohead Rum, he also has a warm spot in his heart for whiskies.  The ever eveloving menu at Repour focuses around fresh ingredients and housemade items, there is also a seasonal touch the underlies their beautiful cocktail creations.

 

"When thinking up this cocktail,  I thought of the Werther's Original candies that would be around Grandma's house.  I wanted something clean, spirit-forward, and simple.  I liked using Haig Club scotch because of its a great belnded Scotch.  T...

To continue the Whiskey-mania that is the Miami Whiskey Mash 2016, we will showcase the best whiskey cocktails in Miami and the incredible bars and bartenders that make and serve them.

We return to The Local Craft Food & Drink (150 Giralda, Coral Gables) for a visit with David Perez and Will Thompson of The Bridge, whose cocktail program has rewarded Coral Gables with incredible imbibery. 

 

For those of you who were deprived of Wrestelmania and prior to the McMahon-era, the wonder of "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair.  The Figure-Four Leg Lock is a finishing move designed to render a submission next to immediately.  This cocktail has the same effect, spirit-forward, incredibly complex and impossible to put down this whiskey tipple is definitely an ending move.

 

"The use of Monkey Shoulder Scotch, a triple single malt blend, is smoky savory and

is a great complement in this seasonal cocktail.  The earthy flavors of ginger and maple pair well with the malt in Monkey Shoulde...

To continue the Whiskey-mania that is the Miami Whiskey Mash, we humbly present some of the best whiskey cocktails in Miami by the incredible bars and bartenders that make and serve them.

 

This week we visit one of the newest additions, and much anticipated concepts in Wynwood,  Beaker & Gray (2637 N. Miami Avenue).  The collaboration between Executive Chef Brian Nasajon and Bar Guru Ben Potts has definitely rendered the right type of attention, read about it HERE.   B & G is truly presenting an eclectic mix of old and new classic cocktails, with all fresh ingredients and incredible technical expertise.  It was defintiely hard to choose one whiskey cocktail, but the Super Vin Santo called to our religious side. 

 

We got the lowdown directly fromm the purveyor of this fine concoction, Mr. Ben Potts.  "The Super Vin Santo's creation was by no means atypical, but its existence came about in a very roundabout way. Initially the cocktail was supposed to be a nutty, Ma...

To continue the Whiskey-mania that is the Miami Whiskey Mash, we humbly present some of the best whiskey cocktails in Miami by the incredible bars and bartenders that make and serve them.

 

This week we visit one of our favorite hangouts, Finka Table & Tap Restaurant  (14690 SW 26th St.) in West-Miami Dade for a visit with Eileen Andrade, Owner and Alex Aportela, Head Bar Manager.  The restaurant and bar that has brought craft cocktails and gastropub concept to the Western borders of Miami is the brainchild of Eileen and Jon Andrade.  Read about them HERE.  We are fortunate to present the Cuban Old Fashioned, their riff on the classic that has become a calling card for Finka. 

 

Eileen and Jon's Grandfather was a bourbon drinker (unusual for a Cuban) and their grandmother made cafecitos all day at their first Miami restaurant.  It was natural to marry the two for Finka.

 

The cocktail features Old Forester 86 proof bourbon.  "Old Forester is a great gateway to b...

To kick off the Whiskey-mania that is the Miami Whiskey Mash 2016, we will showcase the best whiskey cocktails in Miami by the incredible bartenders that make and serve them.

This first whiskey-centric tipple is served at The Local Craft Food & Drink in Coral Gables (150 Giralda Avenue).  Presented by David Perez and Will Thompson of The Bridge, their well-chronicled exploits can be read HERE and HERE.  This dynamic duo has taken over this local hangout in the Gables with a drink program that is reminiscent of their combined bartending experiences in Miami, South Beach and Chicago.  The Grandmas Banana Bread is a beautiful and heavily aromatic stirred cocktail, served up.  It does induce one to reminisce about a visit to Grandma’s house, if your Grandma was a serious bartender with a penchant for spirit-forward cocktails.

 

What influenced this cocktail?  "A winter play on a Sazerac.  The interplay of different banana liqueurs, walnut bitters and cinnamon-infused...
