South Beach: Repour Cocktail Bar

Copy Link

Repour doesn't waste your time with classic cocktails you can get at a hundred different bars. Instead in your drink you'll find things like Bird Chile Syrup, Anchovy Paste, Red Wine Reduction and maybe even a Miso Spiced Rim. With a rotating cocktail list each month there's always an excuse to stubble back. That, and becoming the Drunken Spelling Bee champion. ( $10 says drunk-you can't spell Chateauneuf-du-Pape.)
