South Beach on any given weekend is a little over the top, but this weekend we find ourselves in the middle of Art Basel Miami week and it is Christmas time. The palm trees are decorated like Christmas trees, and wild art is ubiquitous!
Being the art connoisseur that I am, we set off to admire the “Art of the Mojito”. We admired the many different ways the Artist (AKA bartenders) use the tools of their craft, white rum, sugar, lime juice, sparkling water, and mint to a state of perfection. Each artist has his own way of making his art come to life from the traditionalist using sugar cane juice to the more modern infusing raspberries and mangos.
Side note: At some point in the night we were sitting outside on Lincoln Road cooking fois gras on a steaming hot rock.
I never really thought of myself as a patron of the arts, but when I saw the number of Mojitos on my credit card bill this morning, I was one hell of a patron last night!
