Embrace the drink of summer with this month-long dedication to rosé

March, admittedly, isn’t the most exciting month. Technically marking the end of summer, the third month of the year makes us feel as though we’re waving goodbye to fun and frivolity until spring rolls back around. Well, it seems that won’t be happening this year, at least not on Soul Bar & Bistro‘s watch. For the entire month of March, you can find a hearty dedication to rosé — the unofficial drink of summer — comprising titillating new libations, events and a few quirky surprises along the way, too.

Not only will the Viaduct Harbour stalwart be serving up specially-curated rosé cocktails, but the interior — and the staff uniforms — will be drenched in blush hues in celebration of the pink drink. What’s more, each of the five Sundays of the month will play host to the lively, mischievous Sangria Sunday, with rosé sangria flowing freely alongside some quality, DJ driven beats from 1pm-6pm. Sure to round off the week in style, you can rest assured that these rosé-infused Sunday sessions will have you looking forward to the seventh day like never before.

But that’s not all. To really go all out for the occasion, Soul will be gifting anyone with ‘rose’ in their name a free, special Rosé Month surprise cocktail. And luckily, for those who weren’t named after the delightful drink, (or the flower…) there’s still a chance for one lucky Denizen to get in on the action — as we’ve teamed up with Soul to give away a rosé experience to the value of $450. (For more information and entry, click here.) It’s safe to say we’ll be seeing the final weeks of summer through rose-tinted glasses, the perfect way to go out with a bang, we think.
