Sure, today's mainly about tacos. But today's also mainly about vodka.
Raise a glass to National Vodka Day with these top three vodka cocktails for the holiday (and any day after).
Dragon's Milk: Skybar's Dragoto (pictured)
Coast over the red-lacquered teak floor and pass the polished steel pool table to order up this sexy after-hours vodka brew. Poured over ice in a classic highball glass, the Dragoto gets an extra kick from its spicy chili topping.
1901 Collins Ave., Miami Beach
Vodka Hound: Red Hound at Living Room
Sprawl out on this lounge's oceanfront terrace and get ready to sip this salty-rimmed power potion. Mixed with red berry vodka and Maraschino Originale Luxardo liqueur, this grapefruit-infused drink served in a rocks glass hides a tangy (but effective) surprise — and it's not just your daily dose of Vitamin C.
401 N Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale (
Flower Power: The Hoxton's Floral Expression
Offered only in a few locales, Quintessentially Vodka picked this beach house watering hole to craft up their first signature cocktail. With a mix of highly potent vodka and muddled cardamom seed, this concoction might sound like a better marinade than a beverage. Once you have a taste, nobody will blame you for enjoying both.
1111 SW 1st Ave., Brickell (305-677-8466). $17.
