Raise a glass to rosé as Soul Bar & Bistro launches a month-long celebration of this delicious drop

On a warm, sunny day, nothing can quench our thirst quite like a crisp glass of rosé, particularly when it is consumed while basking in the beautiful surrounds of Soul Bar & Bistro’s sprawling terrace. Taking this idea and thrusting it into the spotlight, the lauded Viaduct Harbour restaurant is set to launch a month-long celebration of rosé, where specials on wine will collide with a variety of delicious, creative and unexpected cocktails, created in line with the pink theme and designed to suit any palate.

Rosé Month at Soul Bar & Bistro will run throughout March and has been designed to allow us to soak in the final stretch of Summer. There, diners can discover a comprehensive line-up of rosé-centric cocktails, designed for the occasion by Soul’s clever Bar Manager, Katie Cramphorn, including the ‘Sweet On You,’ (a mixture of Havana 3 Rum, strawberry, lychee, vanilla, lemon and egg whites), the ‘Devil’s Margarita’ (with Altos Plata Tequila, grapefruit aperitif, lime, almond and red wine float), the ‘Watermelon Sugar High’ (with Malfy Rosa Gin, Malibu watermelon, rhubarb and smashed mandarin tonic), and the ‘Mission Impossible’ (a mixture of Absolut Vanilia Vodka, elderflower, raspberry, lemon, mint and ginger beer).

There is also a non-alcoholic option for those who would rather enjoy their delicious concoctions without alcohol, where ‘The Sweetest Thing’ combines Lyre’s Spiced Cane Spirit with strawberry, lychee, lemon and egg whites.

And for those who prefer to celebrate rosé with a glass or two of the best varietals, Soul will also be offering a raft of unmissable wine and Champagne deals throughout March, including G.H. Mumm Rosé at the same price as G.H. Mumm, which will reduce it to $25 for a glass and $125 for a bottle (normally $35 for a glass and $170 for a bottle).

There will also be, of course, a curated line-up of some of the tastiest rosé around, including Campo Viejo rosé, Mt Difficulty’s 2023 ‘Roaring Meg’ from Central Otago, the 2022 Church Road ‘Gwen’ from Hawke’s Bay, and a 2022 Château Roubine ‘La Vie en Rose’ from Côtes de Provence, among a number of others.
