The Bourbon Review has named Yardbird Southern Table and Bar in its list of America's 55 Best Bourbon Bars.
The Miami Beach restaurant is the only Florida spot that got a nod, and the magazine's critic for the list's Southern-region bars recommends the signature Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade. It's made with fresh-pressed lemon juice, organic blackberry, cardamom and topped with sparkling wine. The bourbon is Buffalo Trace, the self-proclaimed most award-winning distillery in the world.
Yardbird's chef, Jeff McInnis, recently left house. But the bar's bourbon flights are still the prelude of choice for a fried-chicken-and-waffles dinner, served with bourbon maple syrup.
