3. Bell Pepper Gimlet at The Dutch

Bell peppers have been the star of a bevy of beverages at The Dutch but the newest iteration about to grace the menu is a show stopper. The Red Bell Smash ($15) with white corn whiskey, yellow Chartreuse, red bell pepper, basil and honey rang our bell for sure, but that was a drink of menus past. Ring in the new year with a yellow bell (pepper). The yellow bell pepper gimlet with gin and this sweet veggie coloring and flavoring brings this cocktail to another level.

2. Emerald Smoke at Radio Bar

Radio Bar is a favorite amongst South Beach dwellers where the cocktails are always expertly crafted and the menu is constantly revolving. A favorite is the Emerald Smoke ($12) with a jalapeño-açaí liqueur, kale, cucumber, lime, and mezcal. It is clear to see where the heat and the smoke come from but the kale and cucumber may have you thinking that you have a cold-pressed juice from neighboring Jugofresh.
