Ocean Drive is perhaps the most touristy strip in all of Miami-Dade, but there's something to be said about being a tourist in your own city. (The hashtag #ilivewhereyouvacation was created for a reason.) But in a sea of overpriced drinks, Mango's Tropical Café reigns supreme. And because of its Tropicana vibe, the drink of choice here is the mojito, which come in 19 varieties. However, stick to the classic, because the mixture of muddled mint leaves, sugar, lime juice, rum, and a splash of soda is magical and doesn't need any bells or whistles. And the price, $12.25, is comparable to drinks on either side of the causeway. For an extra $3.50, you can sip that mojito from a souvenir hurricane glass so you can remember your staycation after the 15-minute Uber drive home.
