Perfectly chilled and citrus-kissed, these new cocktails from Lorenzo on Miami Beach sound perfect for dining al fresco while enjoying the summer breeze.
Lorenzo is definitely known for having killer cuisine and cocktails. Their weekend brunch is a local favorite for the featured Bloody Mary Bar, including 25 different hot sauce options and a variety of house-pickled vegetables.
Helmed by famed cookbook author and James Beard Award-winning Chef Tony Mantuano, Lorenzo is a casually elegant Italian restaurant offering authentic Italian cuisine executed by acclaimed Chef Chris Wyman.
There are hand-made pastas, pizzettas, entrees off the grill, house-made gelato, Italian caffè and more. And, if that description got your mouth watering, know that Lorenzo pairs its delicious culinary offerings with Italian wines, champagne and sparkling wines, and their famous cocktail program.
Speaking of which, Lorenzo has four new cocktails available for summer that have an expert balance of sweetness and acidity.
There' the cool Cetriolo Collins made with Hendricks cucumber vodka and thyme simple syrup. Another new sip that's on the spicy side is the Lampone Sour made with Weller bourbon and raspberry-basil agave nectar, and brightened up with a splash of fresh lemon juice.
