September is National Bourbon Heritage Month and Fontainebleau Miami Beach will celebrate “America’s Native Spirit” with an interactive Bourbon Whiskey Ceremony at Fontainebleau’s signature modern steakhouse, StripSteak by Michael Mina. Beverage director Syed Ali has crafted an educational and entertaining experience that will be available to guests every day during Bourbon Heritage month.
Priced at $35, the StripSteak Bourbon Whiskey Ceremony features Angel’s Envy bourbon; one of the country’s highest rated small batch bourbons. After presenting the bottle, guests will be treated to a quick general lesson on bourbon, Angel’s Envy bourbon and what ingredients will be paired with it during the ceremony. The process begins when the glass is smoked with cloves; while a peach – that has been compressed with bliss maple syrup and cloves for 24 hours – is torched. The glass is then assembled with the bourbon and peach and garnished with tangerine lace. All of the components in the ceremony are used to accentuate the flavor of the bourbon.
Since Rye Whiskey doesn’t yet have its own congressionally decreed month, Ali decided that StripSteak would also pay tribute to American whiskey as well during September, with a new cocktail, the Fig & Whistles. This cocktail is priced at $15 and is made with Whistle Pig 10 year Rye, fig, micro coriander, lemon juice, simple syrup and ginger beer.
StripSteak by Michael Mina is open seven nights a week. The restaurant opens every night for dinner beginning at 6 p.m. and is open until midnight Sunday – Thursday; and until 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday.
