The Honda Classic Burger ($15.50) has a patty made from barbecued meatloaf, plied high with onion rings, applewood-smoked bacon and barbecue “jus,” all between garlic Texas toast.
Maybe a cocktail is more to your liking? The same contest rules apply to ordering the Burger Bar’s Kettle One Tee Time cocktail. It’s basically a spiked Arnold Palmer, with Ketel One Citroen Vodka, ice tea and lemonade.
The burger and cocktail will be available through Saturday.
It’s not everywhere you can get a drink at one of the best bars in the world — while sitting in your bathing suit at the hotel pool.
But that’s exactly the case at the Broken Shaker in Miami Beach, which was recently named among the World’s 50 Best Bars, in a “Drinks International” poll of more than 400 voters worldwide. The Broken Shaker was ranked No. 14 on a list that includes bar from London to Singapore.
It’s yet another honor for a tiny bar wedged inside the Freehand Miami hostel, which opens up to a pool courtyard filled nightly with revelers, no matter the weather. In the heat, it’s bathing suits optional.
Salute Market is a place without secrets. It is simply a place to enjoy fresh food and hand-crafted drinks in sleek, open, unpretentious setting designed by tennis star Venus Williams’ firm, V Starr Interiors. It’s part deli and market, where you can buy fresh sandwiches with pastrami and corned beef flow in fresh from the owners’ home in Chicago. It’s part wine cellar, and full beer and liquor store where you can sample all of the items before you buy them. And it’s an indoor and outdoor bar, where cocktails are made with top shelf liquors — and the recipes to all the drinks are printed on cards so you can buy the alcohol and make the drinks at home.
The Funky Shandy is among the drinks Salute Market makes and prints the recipe to for patrons to take home. A typical shandy is mix of hefeweizen wheat beer and lemonade. This one does it one better by using Funky Buddha’s Floridian wheat ale, Kettle One Citron citrus vodka and ginger liqueur. It at once is refreshing and packs punch.
Other notable drinks
The drinks are seasonal to take advantage of local, fresh ingredients. Among the drinks Salute prints recipes to are its strawberry rhubarb old fashioned, made with bourbon, fresh muddled strawberries and aged-rhubarb liqueur. The watermelon mojito uses freshly muddled watermelon. There are also a selection of craft beers in cans or bottles, including local offerings from Tequesta Brewing Co. and Due South Brewing.
A full deli means you can have anything from a salumi/charcuterie board or a hot sandwich from kitchen. The Sleghtsteak sandwich uses house-roasted eye of round. The Barry uses specially cured corned beef. And all naan bread is fresh baked.
From 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., food menu ranges from $2 to $8. Wine starts at $6, champagne at $11.
One of Palm Beach’s (and our) favorite places to see, be seen and look fabulous over a cocktail, Buccan’s just a few blocks from Worth Avenue but the center of its own bustle.
The popular restaurant debuted their Watermelon Martini just in time for summer. It’s not the kind you had in the late ’90s made with sugary artificial flavored Pucker or some such ickery (I feel like the cocktail gods would have me spit and throw salt over my shoulder to ward off the bad Pucker vibes.) This is real, made of fresh watermelon, lime, simple syrup and vodka. Real delicious!
