Miami can be a little over the top when it comes to certain things… Certain things like cocktails. Well, the weekend is upon us and so it only makes sense that we share some of the most over the top cocktails in the Magic City. These five cocktails look and taste amazing. Cheers!
1 Bar & Courtyard at The Setai: The Gold Martini
The Bar and Courtyard at The Setai, Miami Beach knows how to celebrate gold with The Gold Martini. It's a luxurious cocktail created by mixologist Philip Khandehrish, and yes, it may cost $100, but it's worth every penny. The Gold Martini is made with Russian Standard Vodka Gold Edition, Louis XIII Cognac De Rémy Martin, Grand Marnier “Cuvée 1880”, Riesling Ice Wine by Mission Hills 2009 Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, and a 24 Carat Gold Flake, served in an Asprey crystal martini glass. This golden libation is a true crowd pleaser.

There's goblets and then there's Sugar Factory Signature Goblets. Trust us, they are unlike anything you have ever seen before. With smoke pouring over the edges of the glass, these 60 oz. signature drinks from Sugar Factory look like a whole lot of fun and are downright yummy. Plus, you can make all your friends jealous as they watch your Snapchat story or scroll down your feed. Or just invite them and grab a handful of straws for a goblet tasting. There's the Lollipop Passion full of candy striped lollipops, the Ocean Blue swimming with gummy sharks, or the White Gummi crawling with sweet gummy worms.

4 Florida Cookery's Breakfast Bloody Mary
It's lunch, but in liquid formation and it's delicious. Florida Cookery's Bloody Mary is made with the bar's house-made mix and has taken garnishes to new heights, as it is topped with candied bacon, olives, massive jumbo shrimp, and believe it or not, an empanada. Because what's a drink without an empanada here in Miami. Florida Cookery's Bloody Mary is certainly one-of-a-kind and is perfect for brunch. For just $23, why not have an all-in-one type of drink?
