Summer Lido Cocktails

As recently mentioned by Miami New Times, The Standard Spa is better known for it’s healthy wheatgrass and ginger shots. That being said, The Lido Restaurant & Bayside Grill offers a variety of delicious cocktails and was recently named Best Waterfront Bar 2012. Hey, it’s summertime. Nothing wrong with a cold one while lounging poolside while you "work." Without further ado, our top five favorite "Award Winning" cocktails.


La Bicyclette Rouge: Ingredients: André Balazs “Sunset Beach” Rosé, Elderflower Liqueur, Lemon and Perrier ... André Balazs Rosé is a lovely wine made especially for us by Wolffer Estate in Long Island. The addition Of Elderflower, Lemon and Perrier bring a lovely fruity and light quality to the drink.

Cucumber Lemonade: Ingredients: Vodka, Lime and Fresh Cucumber ... Muddled cucumbers, fresh lime and vodka combine in this delicious refreshing Summer refresher.

Piña Colada Au Natural: Ingredients: 10 cane rum, fresh pineapple and coconut water ... Here is a spin on what we all think of a drink for the tropics. Take all of the flavor of a pina colada without any of the overly sweet heaviness. The coconut water actually hydrates you while enjoying your cocktail and 10 Cane rum provides the depth of flavor.

Fresh Fruit “Caipirinha du Jour”: Ingredients: Cachaça with seasonal fresh fruit, sugar and limes ... All Miami style with the daily changing Caipirinha depending upon what fruit is in season.

Standard Sangria: Ingredients: Sauvignon Blanc, Elderflower liqueur, Ginger liqueur and fresh pears ... Ahhh, what better libation to drink while lying poolside! A pitcher of this lovely summer sangria and all of your troubles float away ... in the bay ... have a nice day.
