Over the past few years, cultural fusions have become quite prominent when it concerns the food and drink world. Some fusions work amazingly well together. Take Atlanta restaurant Poor Calvin’s for example, which boasts a food and drink menu that combines Southern flair with far East sophistication. And when it comes to food and drink fusions, I’m sure the city of Miami reigns supreme. Among the Miami establishments serving up a unique mixture of two varying cultures, and in liquid form on top of that, is the Lord Balfour hotel.
Located on vibrant Miami Beach, Lord Balfour has just introduced a tea-infused signature cocktail list that pairs British staples with a little Latin flair. See, I told you they were serving up some very unique and of course Lushworthy combinations.
In the mood for a rum infused with green tea? Then their “Piccadilly Circus,” which combines green tea-infused rum with lime juice, mint, and ginger beer, should make for a welcoming addition to tea time. And if you prefer your cocktails sans the Brit’s beverage of choice then the Lord Balfour’s new menu offers a handful of cocktails that don’t include tea, but are still heavy on the Latin-British fusion.
You can find a sampling of Lord Balfour’s signature cocktails below. All of the cocktails listed are $12 and are two-for-one during Happy Hour (Monday – Friday, 5 – 7 PM).
