Cinema and cocktails at Boulud Sud Miami

Hollywood has a lifelong love affair with cocktails – think James Bond’s “shaken, not stirred” martini or The Dude’s White Russian in The Big Lebowski.
Now, through the art of mixology, Boulud Sud Miami’s head bartender Craig Welsh, is celebrating the spirit of this summer’s blockbusters – from Disney’s Aladdin and The Lion King to Rocketman and Shaft.

Beginning May 24, Welsh will debut three new cocktails on select Fridays to coincide with new releases. Guests can stop by Boulud Sud’s bar and lounge for a cinematic libation and then catch the film that inspired the cocktail at the Silverspot Cinemas across the street.
