Miami Mojito Company

A well-kept secret doesn't stay that way for long, which explains why so many people know how to find Wynwood's newest hidden tiki bar. The clandestine beach-themed place popped up in December 2016 for Art Basel, but creator Cesar Morales — the owner of Wood Tavern and Bar Next Door — never closed the doors. Instead, his part-time pop-up dubbed Miami Mojito Company has gained impressive popularity. They start with fresh sugar cane juice prepared bar-side via a large metal contraption that presses stalks of sugar cane into a waterfall of cloudy cane juice. From there, it's nothing but whole mint leaves muddled in fresh-squeezed lime juice, and shaken over ice with a few shot of Don Q rum. The resulting drink is not syrupy sweet like the one you'll get at so many tourist trap spots along Ocean Drive. Instead, they're blissfully refreshing, accented with just the right touch of lime and a hint of sweet from raw sugar cane juice.
