The 5 best Miami souvenirs
1) Miami Heat Jersey
Like any professional team, the Miami Heat has its ups and downs. But the last decade has seen more of those ups, and even its downs don’t seem so low. Celebrate the heart this team displays, no matter who gets traded, by purchasing a jersey at a game. It’ll make you feel warm all over.
2) Bottle of Miami's only city-distilled rum
The city’s first distillery offers hourly tours of its facility; these include tastings of the rum, made with local Florida ingredients. Buy a bottle to bring home (but only if you’re checking your bags). The next time you make a mojito, you’ll practically hear the rumba in your glass.
You can never go wrong in Miami wearing a fedora. Timeless and trendless, it’s ideal for anybody, regardless of age or gender. Find the perfect one to take home – material, color, shape of crown and brim – at this establishment, which has 2000-square-feet of headgear available.
4) University of Miami Hurricanes Gear
College sports fans know how mighty the Division I Hurricanes can be. Stop into the bookstore for a commemorative hoodie before watching a home baseball game at ‘The U’s’ Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field or a basketball game at the Watsco Center. (Note: Football games are played off campus at Hard Rock Stadium.)
5) Tropical Hot Sauce
As the name suggests, this popular Latin restaurant specializes in pig products. To go with its grilled, fried and roasted pork dishes, it serves – and sells – bottles of Garlic Serrano, Caribbean Lime, Red Habanero and Habanero Mango hot sauces. Buy one or all four with a carrier and take Miami’s heat with you.
