Indulging in a Sunday Funday at Yardbird Southern Table & Bar on Miami Beach is worth breaking your New Year resolution. When you’re given warm hospitality, boozy cocktails and classic Southern cooking made with farm-fresh ingredients, there can be no shame.
Aside from great Southern fare, Yardbird has an extensive drink menu that offers a selection of mason jars filled with fruity Southern-style cocktails, old fashioneds, and crafts beers, including their own brew on draft, Yardbird Stock Ale. Here are some drink and food options to enjoy together:
Boozy Brunch at Yardbird Southern Miami Beach
Maple-Glazed Bacon Doughnut
You could start off brunch with homemade biscuits or skillet corn bread, but who can resist Maple-Glazed Bacon Doughnuts? Three warm and pillowy treats are generously topped with maple-flavored icing and bits of bacon, and served with extra glaze for dipping. Drink it with a hot cup of locally roasted Panther Coffee, or head straight for the ‘hair of the dog’, and order the Nutty Joe’s Old Fashioned.
Nutty Joe’s Old Fashioned
A smooth Old Fashioned, with a toasted coffee finish, is stirred with Ridgemont 1792 Bourbon and Nux Alpina (Walnut Liqueur), and Panther Coffee Beans over an ice ball; then garnished with lemon peel.
Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade Cocktail
A slightly tart and jammy punch that perfectly pairs Wild Turkey Bourbon and Blackberry Puree along with fresh Lemon, Cardamom and Angostura Bitters, and served in a mason jar.
Carolina Grapefruit Shandy Cocktail
This highly-drinkable and refreshing beer cocktail is made with Dales Pale Ale, Beefeater Gin and Giffard Pamplemousse Rose (Pink Grapefruit Liqueur).
Either Southern cocktail pairs well with the poached farmer’s egg topped Avocado Toast or Butter Lettuce & Grilled Mango Salad -made with char-grilled mango, smoked pecans, tomato onions, and sesame dressing.
Watermelon Sling Cocktail
A very tasty, but strong Southern cocktail made with Troy & Sons White Whisky (Moonshine), freshly Pressed Watermelon Juice, fresh Lemon, and Aperol served in a mason jar over a 2″ block ice, then garnished with Rosemary. For this potent drink you need a big hearty dish, like Chicken ‘N’ Watermelon ‘N’ Waffles.
Chicken ‘N’ Watermelon ‘N’ Waffles
A pile of deliciously fried, yet juicy (brined for 27 hours), all-natural chicken shares a large plate with chilled chunks of cayenne pepper-spiced watermelon and a decadent Vermont sharp cheddar cheese and chive waffle; served with honey hot sauce and bourbon maple syrup.
Southern Peach Cocktail
An intense and flavorful tea cocktail made with Ridgemont 1792 Bourbon, Aperol, Fresh Lemon, White Peach Puree and Sweet Tea served in a mason jar, then garnished with Thyme. Sip this slowly while you wait for your baked-to-order Peach Cobbler.
Fresh from the oven, this shareable deep-dish fruit dessert is packed with juicy peaches, and served with French vanilla ice cream in a Florentine almond cookie bowl and a crunchy cinnamon twist.
