I found Peychaud's Bitters!

and Carpano Antica vermouth in a liquor store out in Doral called . . . wait for it. . . Doral Liquors.

address is 10409 NW 41 Street. I was pretty excited. I am posting in case anyone else has been frustrated by our inability to find cocktail products often common outside of Miami.

Thanks to the Sazerac Company for pointing me to them (beats $10 shipping to buy online). The store itself has a nice selection of hard liquor and liqueurs and an expansive wine selection, though I did not have opportunity to peruse it. Prices on the liquor were about average with some deals and some steep prices.

    Hmmm... nothing like a properly made Sazerac. They have the rye too?

      No, sort of disappointing and odd that they did not have rye. Well they had Jim Bean. Total Wine now carries a few, including old Overholt, Sazerac and Wild Turkey. i've also spotted Wild Turkey in Jennsens Liquors on NW 27 Avenue and a few other liquor stores (also russel's reserve). it seems like hopefully it is getting more widespread distribution.

        Did Total Wine not have the bitters you were looking for? I was thinking of checking them out in hopes of finding some Regan's Orange Bitters.

          Total has over 100 vodkas but they're very weak when it comes to those cocktail essentials. They can be responsive, however. I unwittingly spoke to a local higher up at an event about their lack of rye, and now they carry those, possibly a coincidence. They have angostura bitters but are lacking any others, as well as good vermouths (noilly prat not included). I believe ABC carries Angostura orange. I purchased Regan's #6 through kegworks (aka amazon)

            Thanks. You just saved me a trip over there. I guess I just figured a place with a variety of aquavit might carry more than one type of bitters. (The liquor store by Whole Foods in Aventura did have blood orange bitters, but that wasn't what I was looking for.)

              The stirrings bitters are extremely different. I think lax2miami or tpigeon turned me on to them, but they just don't work as orange bitters (which they also warned me would be the case). You could always make your own. Gary Regan publishes his recipe #5 (the less alcoholic #6 are the mass-produced ones) for free and there's a few other recipes available online. I have not tried any yet, but considering the sources, they should be viable
