By: Shayne Benowitz

Miami’s Cuban cultural influence extends to the city’s cocktails and there’s perhaps no better classic or more delicious drink to sample than the mojito. Traditionally made with muddled mint leaves and lime wedges with simple syrup, club soda and light rum, there are many variations on the refreshing cocktail. We set out to sample the very best in Miami and this is what we found. Read on for the best places to enjoy mojitos in Miami, from funky tiki bars to chic hotel restaurants.

Malibu Farm at Nobu Eden Roc

The oceanfront Malibu Farm at Nobu Eden Roc is the perfect place to enjoy the sea breeze along with their twist on the mojito. The Mint cocktail made with rum, mint, ginger, agave, lime and club soda is a flavorful mojito with a kick. Pair that with a signature dish off Chef Helene Henderson’s California-influenced menu, like burrata, nectarine and arugula salad with sesame seed candy, and you’re in for a treat.

Quinto La Huella at East, Miami

Unsurprisingly, the fashionable Uruguayan parilla restaurant on the fifth floor of East, Miami hotel in Brickell, is home to a stellar mojito. Quinto La Huella keeps the cocktail classic with dry rum, fresh lime, cane sugar and mint leaves. This is also an excellent spot to try a caipirinha, the South America twist on the mojito, which trades rum for cachaça, a Brazilian liqueur with a similar, yet slightly sweeter flavor profile. Either drink pairs brilliantly with their fire-grilled dishes ranging from local swordfish to grass fed Uruguayan rib eye steak.

Kings Doral

For a unique outing in Miami, head to Kings Doral for a round of bowling combined with creative cocktails, crave-worthy food, live entertainment and fun gaming experiences. In other words, Kings is not your average bowling alley. Order their large-format mojito for your group, served in a 62-ounce pitcher, made with fresh mint, coconut water, lime juice, raw sugar cane and light rum.

Miami Mojito Company

Seek out Miami Mojito Company in Wynwood adjacent to Plant the Future and tucked away beneath tropical foliage in a tiki-like setting. You’ll find a long list of flavors to choose from made of fresh juices including raspberry, blackberry, tamarind, passion fruit, pineapple, coconut, strawberry and grapefruit mixed with coconut rum, mint and guarapo sugar cane. The tropical atmosphere combined with the sweet, cold drink makes for the perfect pick-me-up after gallery hopping and visiting Wynwood Walls.

Irma’s Bar at W South Beach

W South Beach’s poolside Grove was reimagined in 2018 with Irma’s Bar, named for Hurricane Irma, which caused the property’s iconic oak tree to collapse. The al fresco bar is made of salvaged wood and debris from its namesake storm as a playful testament to Miami Beach’s resilience. They’ve also got one of the best mojitos in Miami, made with Ron Atlantico, fresh lime and homemade pineapple coconut foam. It’s as lush and refreshing as the bar’s tropical surroundings and hip scene.


For a fruity twist on the mojito, head to Seaspice, the stylish bar and restaurant set on a dock along the Miami River. Whether you arrive by boat or by car, this is a gorgeous setting to enjoy Miami’s waterfront lifestyle on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. The Seaspice Mojito is all about paradise vibes with Bacardi Coconut Rum, raspberries, pineapple, mint and lime.

Nautilus South Beach

Stop by Nautilus South Beach for their refreshing Classic Mojito made with muddled mint leaves, lime wedges, simple syrup and Ron Barceló Platinum rum over crushed ice. Whether sipping the drink poolside or at the hotel’s stylish mid-century modern lobby, it’s the perfect setting for this classic Cuban cocktail in South Beach.

No. 3 Social

One of Wynwood’s newest bars is perched on the rooftop of legendary Miami chef Norman Van Aken’s restaurant Three. No. 3 Social is a relaxing lounge with a stellar cocktail and food menu along with a dynamic lineup of DJs spinning everything from house music to reggaeton. Order the mojito made with mint leaves, simple syrup, lime juice, light rum and topped with a splash of soda and Sprite. Their braised chicken nachos make for the perfect pairing.

Mondrian South Beach

Mondrian South Beach offers poolside pitchers of Flor de Caña Mojitos that serve five people and are made with your choice of classic, passion fruit, mango, strawberry or watermelon flavors. Grab your friends, snag some lounge chairs and soak in the gorgeous views of Biscayne Bay and Miami’s Downtown skyline from one of the most stylish and picturesque perches in South Beach. This is especially true at sunset with a pitcher of Flor de Caña mojitos in hand
