Miami Beach, Fla. (May 16, 2017) — Enjoy the warm weather season at Matador Bar with the newly imaginative cocktail menu of ten thoughtfully crafted libations. Located inside Ian Schrager’s visionary hotel The Miami Beach EDITION, the stately Matador Bar offers an ever-changing, Spanish-inspired cocktail menu that pays homage to the art of bartending.
From floor-to-ceiling windows of ocean views, to portraits of bullfighters adorning the walls, Matador Bar transports guests to another era, where class and glamour reign supreme. Hotel guests and locals alike may enjoy an evening seated at the expansive black walnut and stone bar, the room’s centerpiece, or tucked away at one of the several corner lounge tables with plush velvet seating.
With Spain’s growing fascination and mastery of the classic Gin & Tonic, the Matador Bar team has concocted three updated versions of the original in addition to Matador’s already popular Barcelona G&T. The Lilicoi G&T is a refreshing cocktail created with gin, passion fruit and tonic, adorned with lemon and an orchid; the Yucatán G&T packs a punch, crafted with Matador’s signature habanero sauce, gin, hibiscus and tonic, with lime and Thai chili on the rim; and the GG&T is a ginger, gin and tonic cocktail garnished with orange and ginger slices.
Other new delights include: the Oaxacan Sour, a Mezcal libation with lemon, simple syrup, egg white and fresh basil leaves, shaken and served in a Martini glass; Copper Cup #4, an Elyx cocktail with lemon, ginger juice, hibiscus and St. Germaine; Lighten Up is the ultimate spring cocktail, made with vodka, lime juice, simple syrup, Moet & Chandon Champagne, and Creme de Cassis, shaken and served in a Martini glass and decorated with physalis fruit; Bobby Burns, a stiff drink made with 10-year-old Glenmorangie, sweet vermouth, and Benedictine with a lemon twist; Vieux Carre, a bittersweet cocktail made with Double Rye, VSOP Hennessy, sweet vermouth, Benedictine, a dash of both Angostura and Peychaud's bitters and topped with a lemon twist; Blood & Sand, a play on the classic with Chivas Regal Extra Whisky, sweet vermouth, Cherry Heering, and orange juice, shaken and served in a Martini with a cherry; Jungle Bird, a tropical libation made with Flor de Caña seven-year-old rum, Campari, lime juice, simple syrup and pineapple juice on the rocks, decorated with fresh skewered pineapple.
