Being a married woman with responsibilities and obligations, it’s nice every now and then to have girl time – whether it is gallivanting through the dead of night or at a boozy brunch during the day. Last weekend, I was lucky enough to share some girls’ time with the fiercest ladies I know.
We kicked off our day at Seaspice, a chic spot on the Miami River with an outdoor patio and a globally influenced menu. We took advantage of the Miami Spice brunch menu, and boy was it a treat. My best friend and I shared our courses so I tried…
- Octopus salad and pata negra croquettes (both NomAF)
- Maine lobster benedict (MUST) and power waffle (good but was tempted with roasted pork and waffle, though)
- Mango mousse and peaches with champagne (at this point, I was DONE)
To complement the meal, we enjoyed their sparkling sangria, which consisted of Grand Marnier, raspberry peach, and prosecco. We also indulged in a 2016 83 Côtes de Provence Rosé. The “83” refers to the department number of the Var, the winery’s home county in Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur. It’s pale pink in color, with a hint of gold, and has a super light aroma. This gentle and light wine is fresh in fruitiness, like berries, and has a crisp, citrus edge. I found it online for under $20. It’s perfect for day drinking. 3.5/5.
Next on our boozy bitch brunch, we had a kiki at Kiki, also located on the river (actually, right next door). This boho-chic, waterfront venue was the perfect post-brunch hangout. The beautifully decorated restaurant has traditional versions of Greek cuisine and packs a bunch of “wow” – from the sexy bathrooms to the extravagant décor.
We grabbed some frosé at the bar and settled down on some lounges for girl talk. Between the ambiance and good company, I could not complain – it was truly a fabulous, boozy bitch day.
