Kiki on the River Hosted a Cocktail-Making Class to Usher in Their New “Golden Hour” Happy Hour

Influencers are good at making cocktails, apparently

We love when a good bartender can not only make you a strong cocktail but also impart some knowledge along the way.

So it was with great delight that we headed to swanky Miami River spot Kiki on The River to glean intel from mixology master and Beverage Director Peter Stepanek. From behind the chandelier and candelabra-festooned bar, Stepanek took guests through a step by step creation of the Seville Loves Miami Spritzer.

Notables like The Naughty Fork’s Sami Schnur, Sweet Portfolio’s Valentina Mussi and local socialites Elizabeth Resnick and Ilyssa Whitehead took to the bar to shake, pour and sip delicious libations featuring fresh strawberries, torched rosemary and a sugar rim.  The restaurant just launched a new “Golden Hour Cocktails” spritzer menu offering $10 spritzer cocktails like Hail To The Queen with Hendricks Gin, Champagne, Grapefruit Craft Mixer, House-made Simple Syrup and Fresh Lime Juice.

Guests can enjoy Kiki’s Golden Hour Cocktails and Bites weekly, every Monday-Friday from 5:30pm-7:30pm. To see their entire Golden Hour menu, visit the KiKi website.

Kiki will also be celebrating a two-year anniversary this weekend with an Aegean feast flanked by sparkler-festooned champagne bottles and a smattering of nightlife celebs. Get whisked away to Mykonos on October 27 starting at 1PM. To celebrate the momentous occasion, Chef Steve Rhee will be preparing all of Kiki’s Greatest Hits for $299 (family style for up to 4 guests) which includes: Pikalia (spreads), tomato salad, grilled octopus, Kiki chips, lamb combo, Lavraki, whole chicken, grilled vegetables, lemon potato, and truffle fries. This multi-course meal features all of Kiki’s favorites in a celebratory family style presentation.
