A Toast to Ten Glorious Years of Sipping and Soaking at The Standard, Miami Beach

Miami-Spa Secrets
Wet the skin, and the whistle. It's hydro-mixology, Standard Miami-style.

Recently someone was kind enough to inform us that 2016 marks 10 years of hydrotherapy, hamams, and hangovers at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach.The thing is, we’ve been so busy soaking, sweating, sunning, swimming, and sipping that we hardly noticed the time go by! Which begs the question: how does one commemorate such a momentous occasion? In the spirit of The Spa, we decided to celebrate by engaging in one of life’s most sensual pleasures: the joyous, glorious act of drinking while wet. Photographer Lucie Hugary did the honors. From the “dressing drink” resting outside the shower to a cocktail in the waterfall hot tub, we got wet while wet. Enjoy these sip-worthy cocktails at a water source near you.
