Miami’s mocktail revolution is in full swing, offering a delightful range of alcohol-free libations that are just as impressive as their boozy counterparts. From fruity and tropical creations to herbal infusions and zesty innovations, the city’s mocktails are buzzing with creativity and flavor.
Here are five spots that prove you don’t need alcohol to enjoy the vibrant and refreshing beverage culture Miami has to offer.
Beaker and Gray
Beaker and Gray, the dynamic gem nestled in Miami’s trendy Wynwood neighborhood, isn’t just for cocktail connoisseurs. This whimsical establishment also caters to those seeking a sophisticated and alcohol-free experience with their exceptional mocktails. With the same artistic flair and attention to detail as their cocktails, Beaker and Gray’s booze-less options are a fusion of flavors and textures that will leave you pleasantly surprised.
The mocktail menu is short and sweet, with just two signature selections (although you can always ask the bartenders to make something). The Lyre Liar Spritz is a non-alcoholic take on an Italian spritz while the other option – Aguachile – is equally refreshing with Seedlip, pineapple, agave, cilantro, lime, and togarashi salt. Cheers!
Beaker & Gray is located at 2637 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127. For more information, visit their official website.
Over in the Design District, Le Jardinier is serving up some of the city’s best vegetable-forward fare. Complementing the fantastic food is a drink menu flowing with creativity.
While the cocktail list is much larger than the mocktail list, the restaurant’s two non-alcoholic options hold their own. Le Jardin is made up of cucumber, mint, lime, and soda, reflecting the eatery’s garden-inspired ambiance. The Ananas is a little on the sweeter side with toasted rice, pineapple, and lime. Both drinks are simple but treat diners to a panorama of tastes.
Le Jardinier is located at 151 NE 41st St Suite 135, Miami, FL 33137. For more information, visit their official website.
LPM Miami in Brickell is mainly known for its exquisite French-Mediterranean cuisine and sophisticated cocktails, but they also feature a few mocktails worth your while. The first – Petit Coco – is comprised of coconut water, sorbet, and a touch of citrus; it’s nice and light.
The other – Limonade Noire – is unlike anything you’ve had: rosemary-infused honey with verjuice and activated charcoal, stirred with sparkling water; the presentation makes for a fun photo, and it goes down easy – we actually prefer it to some of their cocktails!
LPM Miami is located at 1300 Brickell Bay Dr, Miami, FL 33131. For more information, visit their official website.
Appreciate the art of mocktail craftsmanship at Paperfish Sushi, where innovative flavors and impeccable presentation take center stage. Beyond the Brickell restaurant’s exceptional sushi creations, Paperfish Sushi’s mocktails are a delightful treat for curious diners.
The strawberry cucumber lemonade is, well, exactly that – a crisp and light libation that’s perfect for cooling off any time of the year. The dragonfruit lemonade is just as appetizing but a little more unique. Either way, you’ll love every sip.
The Strand at Carillon Miami
The Strand at Carillon Miami is all about wellness, so it’s no surprise the Mediterranean restaurant features a bevy of mocktails – 6, to be exact.
The flavors are as fun as the names: The Gym & Tonic (Martini and Rossi Vibrante Aperitivo, Tonic Water, Pink Peppercorn, Rosemary) is super satisfying, and The Lady in Red (Ginger, Grapefruit Soda, Red Berry Tea, Hibiscus Syrup, Lime) is one of the best mocktails this side of town. Hats off to the bar team for their creativity – this breadth of selections is hard to beat.
The Strand at Carillon Miami is located at 6801 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33141. For more information, visit their official website.
