With that kind of history, there is one thing missing - liquor. Because of New York real estate laws, Serendipity has never obtained a license to sell alcohol. That was quickly remedied when the iconic restaurant branched out to Washington D.C., Las Vegas, and now Miami Beach.
Serendipity 3 opened on Lincoln Road this past winter quietly, allowing locals to find the little gem housed on the westernmost block of the pedestrian mall.
Besides some great burgers, crab cakes, and ice cream sundaes guaranteed to make you need a coverup for that Brazilian bikini, Serendipity 3 has created a cocktail menu filled with colorful and whimsical adult treats. These Serendipitinis and elixers are filled with flavors that intoxicate with our favorite memories of childhood. Birthday cake, root beer floats, and cotton candy all grew up and came here to celebrate. We say raise your glass and join the party.
How to drink it: Dunk the cake into the cocktail and let the vodka soak in. This cocktail tastes like melted ice cream cake, but don't let the taste fool you. General Manager James Reico says you're basically drinking eight ounces of vodka -- that's a party in a glass to us!
How to drink it: After the beach. With its blush color and fruity flavor, this cocktail screams pool party.
How to drink it: When was the last time you had sticky, sweet cotton candy? It's just fun! Take a bite of candy, then sip the bright green vodka. But don't float the cotton candy in the drink - it melts instantly!
How to drink it: Mix the whipped cream into the root beer for a creamy root beer float experience. Allow the cherry to sink to the bottom - that's your prize for finishing the whole glass!
How to drink it: Forget your sodium count and make sure they don't forget the salt rim!
How to drink it: Spike it with vodka for an additional $8.
How to drink it: Pour the cup of rum creme into your glass. Eat the little hand-made chocolate cup. Sip slowly to avoid brain frrreeze!
