A $10,000 Strawberry Mojito to Ring in the New Year


Leave it to us folks at VODA to find one of the most opulent ways to ring in the new year. Well, we’ll give the credit to Nikki Beach, creators of this jaw-dropping spectacle of a drink, in where else but Miami Beach. They are offering their $10,000 Strawberry Mojito for one night only, on New Year’s Eve, as part of the  “Magical Garden” celebration, more info on that here. You’ll think you’re in the South of France at this South of Fifth hotspot with an under-the-stars-atmosphere adorned with lush greenery, butterflies and blossoming flowers, life-sized antique bird cages and crystal-dotted oversized gazebos. There’s more–fireworks, DJs, multiple stages with performers, musicians, and dancers. Back to that mojito–if you’re sticking to a lower budget, you can make your own (less expensive) rendition. Maybe only include one regular-sized bottle of Dom, here they mention a Jeroboam, equivalent to four bottles. The recipe, courtesy of Nikki Beach, is below.
