Go to These Six Places for Mojitos in Miami

View as Map

Miami's unofficial signature drink, the mojito, when done right, can be quite refreshing and delicious. But it's also become a bit touristy and isn't usually a local's go-to drink. Nevertheless, there are occasions when a mojito just seems like the right thing to do, especially when there's new twists and variations on it with different fruit flavors. So when you've got visitors wanting that "authentic" Miami experience or a craving for that minty-rum drink, head to one of these places. Here, Eater presents the Six Best Places for a Mojito in Miami.

1. Larios on The Beach

Copy Link
820 Ocean Dr
Miami Beach, FL 33139
(305) 532-9577
Larios claims to make the best mojitos, and it's hard to argue with them since it comes with a real stick of sugar cane. This place is by Gloria and Emilio Estefan and right on Ocean Drive, doesn't get much more Miami than that.

2. Sugarcane Raw Bar Grill

Copy Link
3252 NE 1st Ave
Miami, FL 33137
(786) 369-0353
Their Beet Mojito is a popular twist on the original. Or for just $45 you can get a full pitcher of the original for you and your friends to share.

3. Tarpon Bend

65 Miracle Mile
Coral Gables, FL 33134
(305) 444-3210
Visit Website
Thursdays are for the thirsty at Tarpon Bend. All day you get mojitos for just $3.50. They have fresh variations too like blackberry, watermelon, and pineapple. At that price, it's hard to say it's not a good deal/drink.

4. Balans Lincoln Road

1022 Lincoln Road
Miami Beach, FL 33139

Balan's is a good spot on Lincoln for a refreshing mojito while people watching. Every day from 3 to 7p.m. mojitos are seven bucks and they have lychee and strawberry versions.

5. Versailles Restaurant

Miami, FL 33135
(305) 244-0240

Take a trip out to Calle Ocho for some of the best Cuban food in Miami, and naturally, one of the best mojitos in town. Order a mojito with the ropa vieja and you can't go wrong.

6. Blackbird Ordinary

Copy Link
729 SW 1st Ave
Miami, FL 33130
(305) 671-3307
Ok, so it's not made with rum, but Blackbird's off-the-menu drink the Egret is a delicious twist on a mojito. It's got gin instead of rum, mint, lime, sugar, and a splash of apple cider in a tall glass of crushed ice.
