Especially if those two things are both whiskey.
Here to reinvigorate your love of the magical grain is Rye, a grand drinking den now open at the Ritz South Beach.
Located in the upper lobby of the Ritz's stately Lincoln Road digs, this is the amber-lit space you'll turn to when you've got a taste for barrel-aged Kentucky bourbon and the soothing confines of a luxury hotel.
You'll probably want to enter having eaten, settle into one of the cushy toffee-colored chairs and brace yourself for a dangerously strong cavalcade of single malts, rare bourbons and pricey cognacs (there's also a smattering of vodka and gin, in case your drinking companion can't roll with the dark stuff).
Take it straight, obviously, or go for the end-around with a Perfect Manhattan (rye whiskey, sweet and dry vermouth, bitters, cherries) or a Southern Belle (bourbon, grenadine, OJ and pineapple juice).
When things start to get crazy (and you forget about matters like morning meetings and personal finances), ask the barkeep for a 25-year-old Macallan (at $100 per glass) or the 20-year Pappy Van Winkle (clocking in at a rich and smooth 90.4 proof).
Bourbon rule #316: always trust your glass with a man named Pappy.
