The B-Ginuine
You never know who you’re going to run into on Las Olas Boulevard, a fact that inspired B Square Burgers & Booze’s new drink, the B-Ginuine. Bar manager Wes Hamm blends Tanqueray gin with tropical fruits and house-made pomegranate simple syrup to reflect South Florida’s eclectic identity. The bright cocktail lends itself to the open concept of B Square Burgers, which launched in August 2016. “The name of the drink suits us perfectly,” Hamm says. “We’re genuine people.”


2 1/2 ounces Tanqueray gin
1/2 ounce pomegranate simple syrup
