Malibu Farm Miami Beach

The South Florida outpost of Helene Henderson’s popular California-inspired restaurant pairs laid-back, healthy eating with enviable views of the Atlantic. Stop in for brunch and order one of its new mimosa flights, which offers three beverages each made with a different juice including orange juice, watermelon juice, and kale and apple juice. Pair the mimosas with the restaurant’s popular (and very Instagram worthy) avocado pizza for a picturesque brunch meal.

Hakkasan

This long-standing upscale Cantonese restaurant inside the iconic Fontainebleau Hotel is a favorite for weekend dim sum.  Start the meal with the Hotel 24 Karrots cocktail, made with mezcal, lime juice, cinnamon syrup and carrot juice, for a full dose of vitamin E, and pair the drink with house favorites like the smoked beef short ribs and spicy pan-fried scallops with edamame.

Sometimes eating and drinking is about balance. At Brad Kilgore’s Ember restaurant it offers up decadent dishes like fire-roasted lasagne and roasted cornbread custard with bone marrow butter, which go well with a lighter, veggie-filled cocktail like the What’s Up Daq? made with Havana Club and Santa Teresa 1796 rum, lime, carrot juice, and a hint of cinnamon.

This Wynwood rooftop lounge, housed above Three Restaurant, is a go-to spot in the lively neighborhood. Imbibers looking to add some healthy notes into their cocktail consumption can opt for the Dirty Beet cocktail, made with tequila, beet juice, lime, jalapeño, agave, ancho reyes and black salt, this cocktail is practically a V8 — with the added bonus of tequila.

Of course a restaurant inside the eco-friendly and health conscious 1 Hotel South Beach hotel would boast cocktails filled with good-for-you ingredients, and such is the case for the La Casa De Los Trucos cocktail. The drink is a combination of its house-blended green juice, vodka, aloe vera liqueur, and Aquafaba (a thick liquid that results from soaking chickpeas in water for an extended period of time) that’s then topped off with Green Roads CBD oil.

As its name suggests, this eatery is all about vegetable-based cuisine. Take the same route when ordering drinks and get the Silly Rabbit cocktail made with carrot juice, turmeric, cayenne, honey, lemon, orange bitters and vodka infused with ginger, lemon and grapefruit.

This part dining haunt, part late night clubstaurant, this South Beach classic includes a daily dose of veggies with its Secret Garden cocktail. The combo of rum, carrot juice, mint, lime juice and sugarcane is a sweet and healthy option with a kick.

Nightlife guru/restaurateur David Grutman’s vegan eatery features a cocktail menu that is a crowd-pleaser for those wanting a guilt-free drink since all cocktails are made with cold-pressed juices. Try Drop the Beet for a peppy combo of lemon, raspberries, fresno chili, beets, ginger and mezcal.
