Q & A BEN POTTS A native Miamian, Potts began working in bars in 2009. Since then, he’s been mastering the art of crafting the perfect cocktail at notable hotspots including Wynwood’s Beaker & Gray. Q: How does Miami’s cocktail scene compare to others around the country? Miami is in a unique position since we have access to the best ingredients in the country, plenty of people [are] willing to shell out a decent amount of money for a great drink. And [we have possibly] the best weather—most of the time. This combination makes [it] a pretty attractive place to be, so we acquire a lot of great talent from around the world. Q: What are the classic cocktails in Miami?

The mojito might be the most obvious, but we’re also very close to the birthplace of the mojito —Cuba. Beyond that, anything refreshing is going to be ordered quite a bit, so Moscow Mules and shaken vodka martinis are really common as well. Q: What’s on trend in the cocktail scene?

The trendiest is definitely the Mule, but since they are so unibiquitous, certain bars are using different ingredients or techniques to stand out.

ginger syrup and aromatic bitters. Q: What is your favorite cocktail?

I’m really digging the Boulevardier for some reason. Bittersweet with a hint of barrel age from the whiskey makes it a pretty regular go-to. Q: How do you make a Boulevardier?

My boulevardiers are a little whiskey-heavy: 1.5 ounces of whiskey, usually bourbon, one ounce of Campari and an ounce of sweet vermouth. I stir it in a beaker until properly diluted and strain over a big ice cube and garnish with an orange peel. Q: What are a few local bars that you recommend?

If I’m up north, I go to The Anderson. If I’m on the beach, I make it over to Broken Shaker, 27, Sweet Liberty or Repour. And if I want a party with my drink, I head over to Bodega, Ricky’s, Radio Bar or Purdy Lounge. On the mainland and a little south, I go to Blackbird Ordinary. Q: Is there a concoction

Q: How do you make a Moscow Mule?

you’ve found that’s a cure-all for jet lag?

A classic Mule is vodka and ginger beer, maybe a squeeze of lime. At Beaker & Gray, we add lime juice,

Yes, a liter of water, a “colada” (Cuban coffee), a two-mile run and a daiquiri after the run.

Miami Your Way UNIQUE TRAVEL RECOMMENDATIONS, FIT TO MATCH YOUR PERSONAL STYLE. FIND THE CITY CURATED FOR YOU AT WHERETRAVELER.COM/MIAMI

First-Timer

Family

Sports Fans

With near-perfect weather and diverse activities, Miami is a neverending adventure. Try out the (1) beaches that are marked by more than two dozen colorful lifeguard stands dotting the horizon from South Pointe Park to 85th Street. For a dose of iconic architecture, stroll along the famed Ocean Drive, known for its pastel-hued facades, chrome accents and porthole windows in the (2) Art Deco District. Delight in a Cuban espresso coffee or pastry in Little Havana’s (3) Versailles Restaurant, self-proclaimed as “The Most Famous Cuban Restaurant.”

Whether it’s exploring the outdoors to museums and parks, families will have as much fun as the kids. Venture south to catch a weekend ride on one of the (1) Gold Coast Railroad Museum’s diesel locomotive passenger cars, from different eras in Florida’s history. Delve into the rich culture of American Indians at the (2) Miccosukee Indian Village. Then watch the thrilling alligator wrestling shows and dance performances. Pack a picnic and spend the day at (3) South Pointe Park. With stunning water views, a kids area, restaurant and pier, this park is a coveted strip.

For basketball enthusiasts, we root for the home team in style at the (1) AmericanAirlines Arena. The Dewar’s Clubhouse, HYDE Lounge and Waterfront Theatre, are but a few of the top-notch places to experience before tip-off. Catch a baseball game at the new (2) Marlins Ballpark, complete with a retractable roof to shield you from the sun and rain, and plenty of comfort food choices. Join the locals at (3) Bowlero Miami in Dolphin Mall, a bowling destination with 34 lanes, laser tag, arcade games and a sports bar with juicy burgers, premium cocktails and desserts.
