By Tucker Verdi
The weekend is here. The sun is out. The fun is just beginning.
With all the exciting tennis and beautiful weather in store this middle weekend of the 2019 Miami Open presented by Itaú, you might be asking yourself where you can get a nice beverage to enjoy in between big matches. We wouldn’t want you going thirsty, so here’s your guide to a variety of libations at the 2019 Miami Open.
During this fortnight, we are proud to introduce the official drink of the tournament — the MO Smash. An artfully crafted cocktail available throughout our new campus. Made with Hendrick’s Gin, blood orange sour, soda water, and blood orange liqueur, the MO Smash is a light and refreshing cocktail that combines the bold, citrus flavors of South Florida with the understated quality of Hendrick’s Gin.
The Hendrick’s Gin Bar serves up a variety of cocktails with this “super-premium” liquor created in 1999. The official sponsor of the Miami Open’s signature drink, this Scottish gin is infused with flavors of juniper, rose, and cucumber to provide a crisp and invigorating taste.
You can get your bubbly on at the Moët Chandon Lounge, serving the finest selection of champagnes and rosés. Sit back and relax with a flute or a goblet under a shaded canopy located on the West Lawn.
Enjoy wine by the glass or share a bottle among friends at the Kim Crawford Club House, our New Zealand wine oasis also located on the West Lawn. Kim Crawford wines embrace the core philosophy that quality wines should have quality tastes, so swing on by and taste them. Or, you can try the KC Ace Frosé, sure to cool you down on a hot spring day.
Made with only the finest tequila and flavorful mixers, Milagro Tequila Bar offers outstanding frozen strawberry and lime margaritas served up on the East Terrace. Or if you’re the spontaneous type, order yourself an original cocktail. Either way, Milagro Tequila Bar will enlighten your palate with a sweet and refreshing creation.
The finest imported beer is on tap and flowing at the Stella Artois Lounge. Nestled in a finely adorned corner of the East Terrace, this expansive refuge from the sun and heat will cool you off. If you aren’t a beer drinker, Stella is also serving their world-class cider as well.
For something light, citrusy, and revitalizing, pick up a White Claw on your way to see your favorite players on the court. Pop open a can and enjoy the crisp taste of these low-calorie beverages.
The Flor de Caña Rum Bar is the ideal place to escape to island time and a delicious rum cocktail. Located in the Grove, this quaint bar, serving a variety of liquors specializes in rum drinks, provides guests the chance to getaway, even at one of the world’s largest tennis tournaments.
Spiced ginger beer, tangy lime juice, and your choice of liquor come together at the Reyka Mule Bar in the Grove. Whether it’s a Moscow mule with vodka or a Kentucky mule with bourbon, the Reyka Mule Bar serves up excellence, with a hint of ginger and lime.
There are, of course, plenty of non-alcoholic beverages to choose from to quench your thirst as the Miami Open heats up. But should you pop into one of our special locations to enjoy any of these creative and tasty thirst-quenchers, as always, remember to please drink responsibly.
