The first impression of Wynwood Kitchen & Bar is of visual overload. Giant murals of street art are everywhere - behind the bar, on the patio walls and in the dining room. This hipster paradise, however, also has a serious kitchen and a bar that goes beyond the average cocktail. Though best known for their beer selection, Wynwood Kitchen & Bar has an interesting collection of hand crafted cocktails, each inspired by the street artists involved in creating the decor of the restaurant itself.
The Futura looks like a Martini and tastes like a creamsicle. Made from vanilla vodka, Grand Marnier and fresh squeezed orange juice.
Sake, gin, lime juice and a simple syrup made with fresh cucumber comprise the Ben Wolf, a refreshing cocktail that's deceptively strong for such a smooth drink.
The Nunca is a "farm fresh" cocktail that combines freshly muddled strawberries, mint and sake. The result is a minty, fruity creation that Mojito lovers would enjoy.
It takes a creative mind to even think of mixing pear schnapps, tequila and jalapeno, but the David Sherry works. It's a sophisticated version of the classic Margarita. The schnapps cuts the power of the tequila and the muddled jalapeno adds a warm afternote to this sassy and spicy libation.
A mix of hand-crafted tomato cilantro water, vodka, Tabasco and lemon,the Clare Rojas provides the savory flavor of a Bloody Mary without the thick and heavy texture.

The Old Fashioned gets a modern twist with the AVAF. Bourbon, sweet vermouth and bitters are mixed into a masculine drink worthy of a three-cocktail Mad Men lunch. A cherry soaked in Meyers rum seals the deal.
