Drink This Now: The Blackberry & Sage at Sexy Fish Miami

Miami is on fire right now and one of the hottest spots in the city is Sexy Fish. The London transport opened to much acclaim in Brickell in 2022, and with delicious drinks and food, it’s easy to see why. Case in point: the Blackberry & Sage cocktail from the restaurant’s recently launched Trinity cocktail menu. Loosely based on a Paloma, the tart blackberry provides a refreshing base, with the tequila beautifully complemented by the herbaceous sage. The blackberry wafer is drizzled with salted yuzu and will give a paloma style kick to complement the drink.

Unleashing the power of three, the menu — available at both Sexy Fish Miami and London locations — focuses on balancing the elements of flavor, aroma, and texture; creating unexpected synergies to excite the senses. The limited-edition cocktail list has been curated by Xavier Landais, Director of Bars at Caprice Holdings, alongside his team of bartenders, and will feature twenty show-stopping new creations, including sixteen alcoholic and four non-alcoholic variations. Utilizing an array of select spirits including vodka, gin, whisky, and tequila, the menu will play on flavor, aroma, and texture.

Xavier Landais comments: “Our brand-new cocktail menu is the culmination of six months of development work and is a huge passion project for all 40 of our London and Miami bartenders. This is such an exciting project and the first time we have launched a brand-new menu across six continents on the same day with our full, Sexy Fish menu and original glassware. It’s incredible that guests visiting our host bars will be able to enjoy the full Sexy Fish experience for one night only, whether they are in Miami, London, Colombia, South Africa, Australia, or South Korea.”
