It has long been a whole lot easier to get a Mojito than a good glass of Merlot in Miami.
This comes to mind because yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, something you may be commemorating today with a bowl of menudo (in case you decided drink a lot of beer rather than a glass or two of wine).
Part of the reason for wine playing second fiddle to cocktails in Miami has been a dearth of really good Italian restaurants.
Beachcraft offers a very creative craft cocktail menu, like many restaurants in the neighborhood. But it also spotlights excellent wines — some by the glass, some by the bottle, some both.
Including Merlot? Only one of the best, made by Napa Valley’s Shafer Vineyards and priced at $135 per bottle.
