Celebrate spring in the best way with Margarita Month at Soul Bar & Bistro

The first day of September means the start of everything good in life; the days are getting longer, and summer is well on its way. One other clear indicator of that is the arrival of Margarita Month at Viaduct Harbour’s iconic Soul Bar & Bistro, and if past experiences are anything to go by, this year’s iteration is going to be one hell of a fiesta.

Having all likely experienced a long lunch at Soul, we know that an afternoon of convivial activities is guaranteed with the right libations. And really, what drink is better to lift the mood than a margarita?

Aside from offering the classic iteration of this cocktail (shaken, not frozen with a salted rim of course), Soul’s beloved bartenders have taken inspiration from Olmeca Altos’ superior tequila to create an inspired menu that pushes the bounds of what we would typically call a margarita. Take The Devil Wears Plata, for instance, which sees Altos Plata married with crème de mûre, raspberry, lime, mint and ginger — an uncharacteristically fruity margarita. Or for those seeking something more tropical, Tequila Mockingbird sees tequila mixed with the welcome addition of coconut, ruby red grapefruit, pandan and lime. An inspired drink, we think.

As self-appointed margarita connoisseurs, we’re glad that this springtime takeover lasts all month. So as the sunshine and warm days emerge from their seasonal hibernation, you’ll know exactly where to find us.
