Guy Harvey launches a spiced rum.
Artist Guy Harvey has made a career out of painting his beloved ocean and the creatures who live in it.

The artist has also licensed out his name and artwork on everything from the hull of Norwegian Cruise Line's newest & largest ship, the "Escape" to t-shirts and wine, with much of the profits from these endeavors going to the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation.

Now, the artist and conservationist has launched Guy Harvey spiced rum. Distilled in the Caribbean, this amber colored spirit is spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon and finished with a hint of vanilla.

Mind Your Manors in Wilton Manors Offers Spirulina-Infused Cocktails

The MYM Bloody Mary with the superfood spirulina.
By now, we all know a glass of wine here and there can be good for you. In addition to red wine's heart-healthy antioxidants and resveratrol, recent studies show those who drink two glasses of wine a day are slimmer and 40 percent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes.

So it got us thinking: Is there a benefit to boozing other than vino? After all, there's no reason why cocktails can't be good for you too -- especially if you're frequenting a bar that looks more like an apothecary than a happy-hour hot spot. You just need a few of the right ingredients.

Most people don't know much about Al Capone except for what they see in movies and sensationalized headlines: that of a violent bootlegger whose name was among the most notorious during the days of Prohibition.

But one of the last people on Earth with actual memory of Al Capone, his niece Deirdre Marie Capone, doesn't see him this way and is trying to change how history views her uncle.

This Saturday, NYY Steak and Deirdre Capone pay tribute to her Uncle Al on his birthday by hosting a four-course Templeton Rye Whiskey Dinner at the Seminole Casino in Coconut Creek.

Mike Lehman's cocktail takes the win!
Dozens of Broward-area restaurants and bars entered the Winterfest Absolut drink contest, vying for the title of this year's "Absolut Perfect Cocktail" but, of course, there can be only one winner.

After much deliberation, two finalists competed the other day at Bar Stache in Fort Lauderdale for the title and a $500 prize, after having won the social media portion of the competition. Each bartender was graded (by myself, Laine Doss) on the name of drink; presentation; originality; ingredients; and, most importantly, taste.

The bartenders who landed the coveted finalist spots were Mike Lehman from Bar Stache and Amanda Ellis from Oceans 234. Each were tasked with mixing cocktails that were both flavorful and representative of Winterfest and the holiday season in South Florida.

Sure, LeBron James is back in Cleveland, but the owners of Bull Market -- John Todora and Ian Rose -- are still rooting for their hometown team. And to prove it, for the duration of the 2014-15 NBA season, the bar is offering to pay your tab on certain terms.
