Iris, Catch Miami
“The Iris is an easy crowd pleaser. It has an addictive blend of tart grapefruit and earthy-sweet honey, and it’s good for you. Grapefruit is just coming into season during the holidays and it gives you an immune-boosting dose of vitamin C. Topping the cocktail with a splash of Champagne keeps it bright and nothing lets people know a party has started like the sound of the cork popping on a bottle of bubbly.” – Colin Maxwell, lead bartender, Catch Miami.
