This holiday season, the Champagne Bar at The Surf Club will bring back their iconic parties by first launching a new cocktail collection reminiscent of these memorable celebrations. The new collection, aptly called “Reflections,” will honor the memory and the legacy of the iconic celebrations that occurred at The Surf Club since the 1930s. 

The Champagne Bar team thrives under the direction of Head Bartender Valentino Longo. Longo and his team created the collection’s eight cocktails which are a modern interpretation of the historic themed parties that once celebrated culture and life in a truly gorgeous venue. 

“The vision behind Reflections is to relive the spark of what The Surf Club is historically known for — the years of parties, the happiness among people having fun and living in the moment,” said Longo.

To keep a spontaneous and lively atmosphere, a series of guest bartenders will accompany the presentation of each cocktail. Archive photos of past dinner parties and galas hint at the Surf Club’s enduring allure. It was the place to be in the winter social season. Longo and his team have ensured that it will also be the place to be this winter season. 

 “The Surf Club created the perfect social scene back in the day, where the parties were always unique with elaborate styles and themes,” continued Longo. “Our new cocktails honour this legacy while interpreting each theme for today’s guest.”

Last Tuesday, November 16th, the Four Seasons celebrated “Derby day” with all the flair of a spectacular soiree. The hotel encouraged guests to dress in the Derby-theme. Special guest Bartender, Masa Urushido of New York City’s Katana Kitten and winner of 2020’s World Best Bar, shined at the illustrious event. Urushido and the Champagne Bar team showcased four one-night only cocktails created using Woodford Reserve Bourbon. A live band also amused the attendees the entire night, providing an amazing ambiance. 

The Derby day event represented only a taste of what the Champagne Bar has in store. The Reflections Guest Bartender series will return every month and feature one of the new eight cocktails. 

“The art is in the garnish and the feel of each cocktail,” said Longo. “Fiesta in Rio for example – themed to the annual festival in Rio de Janeiro – uses authentic Brazilian ingredients, such as cachaca and Brazil nuts, paired with local produce from Miami. The cocktail allows you to experience what Fiesta in Rio would feel, look and taste like right here in Miami, through a thoughtful blend of local flavors rooted in the culture of the party’s theme.”

It is time to celebrate in style. Reflections is now available at The Champagne Bar. Consumers may also enjoy the hot new collection at Lido Restaurant at The Surf Club if they dare to discover the bar’s historic archways.

Fun, easy, and delicious. It’s time to up your shot game with LIQS Cocktail Shot. Since 2013, LIQS has been a convenient and reliable way to consume ready-to-drink products. Ready-to-drink products have been the only alcohol product to grow during the COVID-19 pandemic. E & J Gallo recently acquired LIQS Cocktail Shot, and their product is now available across the United States. Each Cocktail Shot is made with premium spirits, real fruit juices, and natural flavors. They are also low in sugar, low in calories, gluten-free, and completely natural. 

The makers of the LIQS Cocktail Shots have kept the environment in mind by creating an environmentally conscious product. The 50ml shot glasses are not only reusable but are also recyclable. According to the LIQS website, the shot glasses are manufactured with sturdy and BPA-free shot glasses from #1 PET plastic which is the most widely recycled plastic in the world. A night of drinks with little to no environmental impact? The future is looking a little brighter and much more fun. 

004On the subject of fun, there are five flavors available. The first flavor from which to choose is the Vodka Lemon Drop which is “the most popular shot in America.” The Vodka Lemon Drop has real lemon juice and sugar cane. It is 20% ABV, 40 proof, gluten-free, and only 123 calories. Another available flavor is the Vodka Kamikaze. This shot is typically made from vodka, triple sec liqueur, and lime juice. The LIQS version is infused with a hint of natural vanilla that makes an already classic shot all the more irresistible. 

Like the Vodka Lemon Drop, the Vodka Kamikaze has the same ABV, proof, and gluten-free qualities. However, this shot boasts a mere 109 calories. With the next flavor, Vodka Lychee Grapefruit, the LIQS team accomplishes an incredible feat. In the 102 calorie shot, the citrus of grapefruit balances effortlessly with the sweetness of lychee. Then, there is the Tequila Cinnamon Orange. A true LIQS original, this innovative flavor combination is an industry first that promises to change the way consumers conceptualize a tequila shot. Last, there is the Whiskey Fireshot which is as hot as it sounds. This shot combines premium whiskey with pure cinnamon and vanilla crème to create a devilishly appetizing shot.

All five flavors are available to order nationwide. To order from the world’s first premium cocktail shots, visit their website at https://www.liqs.com/home/
