Upcoming Events

The Craft Spirits ‘N Cocktails Festival, Miami’s largest exhibition of spirits and cocktails, is only one month away. The festival will take place in Iconic Cruz Building in Coconut Grove on Friday, October 8th, 2021. The main event will demonstrate the best and brightest components of resurgent spirits and cocktail culture for all attendees to enjoy. Consumers will not only learn about and engage with the world of spirits, but they will also get the chance to explore the essence and allure of the industry. 

Craft Spirits ‘N Cocktails Founder, Frank Moreno, cannot wait to celebrate with Miami spirits and cocktail consumers and enthusiasts. “The goal when we started was to create a memorable event, where the curious novice or experienced aficionado, had the opportunity to learn and enjoy the craftsmanship and authenticity that goes into spirits and cocktails,” said Moreno. However, for the eighth year, Moreno is eager to entice a more specific audience. “This year we are limiting attendance to elevate the experience and safety for attendees and brands alike,” explained Moreno. 

There is more fun to be found as more spirit and cocktail enthusiasts abound. In addition to the five-day celebration, the days before the festival will include bartender competitions, happy hours, and many more activities to set a fun, thrilling tone for the subsequent event. 

On Monday, October 4th, the week of Craft Spirits ‘N Cocktails will kick off with an exciting competition called the BareKnuckle Bartender™ which will take place at 8 p.m. During the competition, Miami’s biggest and baddest bartenders will compete to make the best cocktails in a “Chopped-style” competition. The winner will earn the highly sought-after title of BareKnuckle Bartender Champ. The event is open to the public so everyone has the opportunity to start the week off with some fun, excitement, and good old-fashioned battle bartending. This event’s location is TBD so attendees should be on the lookout for more information so they don’t miss out on this opportunity. 

On Tuesday, October 5th, attendees can up the ante by heading to Cerveceria La Tropical (42 NE 25th St). Cerveceria La Tropical will host a Tapped Tuesday Extravaganza that starts at 7 p.m. Guests can “pre-game” with a Happy Hour highlighted by beer and spirited cocktails. This event is also open for the public’s enjoyment.  

On Wednesday, October 6th, ladies may strut on over to Bar Nancy (2007 SW 8th St) for Women, Whiskey & Wieners™. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the best women in the Miami bar industry will make and serve divine and delectable whiskies and whiskey cocktails from 6 to 10 p.m. The best part? A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Miami USBG Relief Fund. This event is open to the public so come one and come all for the festivities.   

Last but not least, all the fun festival events come to a culmination on Friday, October 8th. It’s the moment everyone has been waiting for, the belle of the ball, la piece de la resistance, Craft Spirits ‘N Cocktails 2021. Craft Spirits ‘N Cocktails will take place at The Cruz Building (3157 Commodore Plaza) from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. This incredible, large-scale tasting event will showcase over 100 spirits and cocktails from across the country and around the world.

Pineapple, Coconut, and Rum. There’s nothing more tropical, tantalizing, or thrilling than this delicious combination. Just by reading or hearing the phrase, “Piña Colada,” we are already dreaming of a vacation on a luxurious Caribbean Island, right? This mental transportation to paradise is probably why this Cocktail, originally from Puerto Rico, has become one of the most popular and beloved drinks around the world. In celebration of Piña Colada Day, this Saturday, July 10th, 2oz Mag would like to suggest the best places in Miami to enjoy this idyllic Cocktail. So find a venue, kick back, relax, and take a sip of paradise.

Sexy Colada


1600 NE 1st Ave, Miami, Fl. 33132

In Miami, 22400oz of Esotico’s twist on the Piña Colada, “The Sexy Colada”($14) is sold every month, using around 1400 Pineapples monthly between their kitchen and bar, according to Elis Carriero, Bar Manager at Esotico Tiki Lounge. “To improve a Pina Colada is not easy, because it is already a beautiful and delicious drink, but our twist is definitely the best sellers in the house! We use everything from the pineapple since our concept is zero waste. We use 1/2 pineapple in the kitchen for our pineapple rice, chunk for cocktails, and for the fresh juice, with the skin we can prepare infusions and we use the leaves for garnishes as well. Our secret for the Sexy Colada is to do everything with love and very high-quality ingredients,” says Elis.

The Sexy Colada is a recipe from Danielle Dallapolla with Coconut cream re’al, Ginger syrup re’al, Bacardi Carta Oro, Pineapple juice, Pinch of salt, Lime juice, Coconut water from fresh coconut
