It’s time to start thinking about your New Year’s resolutions. Cut carbs? Get back to the gym? Quit soda? Yes, yes, yes — you should definitely do it all. But if you are planning to get healthy in 2016 (or at least try), meaning jump into a post-holiday detox plan no later that January 2nd, then now is the perfect time to indulge in a few guilty pleasures. What better way to send off the year than by sipping one of Miami’s most creative cocktails? From a tea pot that packs a spirited punch to a daiquiri paired with a sweet treat, ahead you’ll find the city’s coolest (and most dangerous) tipples.


You’ve probably had dozens of different daiquiris but never one paired with a pastelito. That’s, in part, what makes the Pastelito Daiquiri a must-try at Ball & Chain, the historic jazz-themed bar that returned last year to Little Havana. It is a mix of pastelito-infused aged rum, lime and syrup, paired with its namesake guava-filled pastry, which is a major staple in Cuban culture.
