Peru, meet Miami. The Picojito is Ceviche 105’s take on the mojito: Pisco 100, fresh mint leaves, simple syrup, fresh lime juice, and soda water. Basically the cocktail equivalent of a dip in a Peruvian lagoon. ($10)
Ceviche 105, 105 N.E. 3rd Avenue; 305-577-3454
A “Stackhouse Mojito” is mixed with aged rum, muddled orange, mint, sugar cane syrup, orange bitters, orange juice, and clement Creole shrub float (which sounds mysterious and citrus-y) plus a view of the whole city from the 16th floor of a Brickell skyscraper...could our happy hour get any happier? ($12)
Area 31, 16th floor at EPIC Hotel, 270 Biscayne Boulevard Way; 305-424-5234.
You can find a YouTube clip of the “Amazing Bathroom at Balans in Brickell,” but we keep coming back for the Pineapple Sage Mojito, a complex take on the Cuban classic. ($11.50)
Balans, 901 South Miami Ave; 305-534-9191.
