With summer at the front door, it is officially hot. Whether you’re seeking refuge inside the confines of an air-conditioned bar or hitting the pool, the best accessory for the season is a beautifully crafted drink.

1. Mambo King

Arguably one of the most beautiful views of the city, the pool at The Mondrian sits alongside Biscayne Bay. While you’re there, sip on the decadent Mambo King, a mix of Stoli Razberi and Laurent-Perrier that’s topped by a raw-sugar rim. 1100 West Ave., Miami Beach, 305.514.1500

2. Spring Negroni

Italy arrived in Miami Beach last winter with the opening of Lorenzo at The Redbury. Say “ciao” to the heat and “buongiorno” to a Spring Negroni—gin, vermouth, aperol and orange bitters. If you’re looking to get away from super-sweet drinks, this is the perfect one for you. 1776 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 305.220.1776

3. Cotton Candy Cosmo

For sports fans, catch the game at Duffy’s North Miami Beach and cheer on the home team with cotton candy. But not just any fluffy snack, it’s the fun Cotton Candy Cosmopolitan—Pinnacle County Fair Cotton vodka, cranberry and lime juice topped off with a poof of the sugary stuff. Duffy’s North Miami Beach, 3969 NE 163rd St. North, Miami Beach. 305.760.2124

4. Creole Mint Julep

Southern gentry calls for a mint julep, with or without the Kentucky Derby. Never going for the ordinary, the mixologists at III Forks at Gulfstream Park had some fun with this classic by adding some Cajun seasoning for an extra kick. III Forks, 501 Silks Run, Suite 1130, Hallandale Beach. 954.457.3920
