Fontainebleau Miami Beach Launches Summer Cocktail Program (Recipes)

The Fontainebleau Miami Beach is mixing up its cocktail program for the summer, with every one of the resort's signature restaurants offering bright and refreshing libations to cool you off for the hot weather ahead.

Each drink ($16) reflects the cuisine at its respective venue (Scarpetta, Hakkasan, Michael Mina 74, Stripsteak, and the resort's Bleau Bar), yet all are designed for their drinkability with or without food. New Times was invited to sample some of the hotel's new libations. Try them at the resort, or make them at home with these recipes to impress your guests with your mad mixology skills.
