#4 Cuban Blizzard at Lincoln Eatery
723 Lincoln Ln. N.,
Miami Beach, FL
Since we’re talking about Miami and there’s virtually no winter here, how about you get a drink that resembles the season? Add to that that we’re also close to Cuba and there’s no winter there, either. Try the Cuban Blizzard at Lincoln Eatery. This healthy dose of Cuban coffee and liquor along with its name is just what the doctor ordered. The festive libation is a delicious blend of rum, coffee, liquor, peppermint schnapps, and a splash of cream, and comes with a crushed peppermint candy rim. The price of this drink is a cool $15.
