A Perfect Pairing

We recently visited our friends at Mercadito Miami, who paired for us a “Smokey Pablo”—reposado tequila, mango puree, cinnamon-chile syrup, blueberry puree and fresh lime juice— and beautiful Octavio coffee from our own farms in Brasil. The cocktail and beverage program at Mercadito (on its own a wonderful modern Latin restaurant) is curated by the Tippling Bros., the libation geniuses behind NYC’s The Tippler, Tavernita in Chicago, and other Mercaditos. With a coffee program as sophisticated as their cocktail program, it’s so nice not to have to choose one or the other.
