Fontainebleau Miami Beach Celebrates National Bourbon Heritage Month

Angel’s Envy Paper Plane from StripSteak by Michael Mina

Across the nation, September is National Bourbon Heritage Month—and while we already gave you our list of what to drink in Miami to celebrate—the Fontainebleau Miami Beach {4441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; 800.548.8886} has given us a few more bevvies and bites to consider. All month long, head to the hotel’s high-end, award-winning restaurants and bars for specialty bourbon cocktails, flights, and even spirit-infused bites that you won’t find anywhere else.

The first place to start is none other than the Fontainebleau’s resident steakhouse: StripSteak by Michael Mina {4441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; 305.674.4780}, where, even when it’s not National Bourbon Heritage Month, you’ll still find top-notch bourbon drinks all year long. This month, be sure to try two of its signature cocktails: the Yama Japanese Drip Infusion with Woodford Reserve infused with chocolate, banana, coconut, and espresso beans, and the Angel’s Envy Paper Plane with Angel’s Envy Bourbon, Aperol, Nonino, and fresh lemon juice.

In addition to that, for this month only, the restaurant will offer three curated experiences centered around acclaimed American bourbons, like The Perfect 10 flight with half-ounce pours of Russell’s Reserve 10 year, Michter’s 10 year, and Eagle Rare 10 Year. Similarly, the Julian’s Legacy flight has half-ounce pours of Old Rip Van Winkle 10 Year, Pappy Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 year, and Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 15 year. Finally, the Gems of the Rickhouse flight highlights extremely rare, small-batch bourbons, and includes half-ounce pours of Michter’s Celebration, A.H. Hirsch 16 Year (1974 bottling), and Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 20 Year. Proving just how rare it is… that last flight is priced at $335 per person.

But like we said, it’s not just about the drinks. At Chez Bon Bon {4441 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach; 305.674.4727}Fontainebleau’s chic coffee shop and patisserie, hungry patrons can get bourbon-infused treats like Signature Sinatra Bourbon Chocolate Bon Bons and Sinatra Bourbon Caramel Flan with Burnt Orange Cream all month long.

National Bourbon Heritage Month specials will run through September 30, 2018.

Happy dining!
