Dinner and Drinks at Sugarcane in Miami!

335yellow mango cocktail at sugarcane
“Spice of Love”, fresh jalapeo, passion fruit syrup, mango essence, Svedka, Cointreau.

Sugarcane in Miami is simply beautiful!

The plantation style decor and the outdoor patio dining area are absolutely amazing.

But I have to say that the food was disappointing.

Items were undercooked, bland or simply less than interesting.

Or, even worse, the dishes were too fussy with too many ingredients.

“Hibiscus Blossom”, citrus essence, native mint, hibiscus infused cachaa.

I do, however, have no complaints about the cocktails!

These lovely concoctions were fresh and tasty!

Mint, mango, cucumber and spices were perfectly combined to create delicious libations of heavenly proportions!

This ricotta cheese cake was, also, very good and I learned something.

This cake was smooth and creamy.

The cakes which I have made in the past were always a bit dry and lumpy.

This one was wonderful and I am going to try to make it myself!

Saved by my bff! Welcome relief following an afternoon of a crabby teenager and Fall yard cleanup, I end up at M’s house where he created an elixir to ease my pain!

A little alcohol alchemy led to this lovely Red Velvet Martini, which tastes like a chocolate covered raspberry jelly stick!

Three Olives Chocolate Vodka, some frozen raspberries, some ice in a shaker, and two pretty Martini glasses!
