Churchill’s Pub is your go-to place for all things British but most people come here to either hear live music or drink. However, the drinks are also a huge pull. So it comes as no surprise that Churchill’s is one of the few establishments in Miami that serves a hot toddy. The classic British drink is made with honey, tea, brandy and lemon juice. It’s the perfect compromise between your standard tea and a stiff drink. Pop in and sample one soon.

Segafredo is a franchise that can be found all over Miami. It is famous for its one-of-a-kind drinks but the hot drinks menu takes the cake. Segafredo offers four spiked hot concoctions to choose from including everyone’s favorite, the Irish coffee. However if you’re adventurous and have a sweet tooth, then you should try the Roma. It’s expresso mixed with Bailey’s liquor, creme de cacao and white chocolate cream.

It’s impossible to complete a ‘best of’ hot drinks list without mentioning Miami’s most famous hot drink, the Cuban coffee. Nobody does this drink better than Versailles Restaurant. This is the one warm libation that every tourist must try and that every local has overdosed on. It starts with expresso that is mixed with a hearty dose of sugar and poured into a small shot. That shot has twice the caffeine of one cup of American coffee. It’s like an adrenaline shot to the arm.
