Where to Celebrate World Margarita Day in Singapore
Margarita is one of the most beloved cocktails in the world, and it’s easy to see why—it’s boozy and refreshing and makes for the perfect drink to cool us down. It’s easy to prepare, too. All you need to do is mix tequila, orange liqueur Cointreau, lime and salt and voilà, you’ve got yourself a Margarita that you can easily serve at your home gatherings.
Whether you drink it at home or at a bar, it has become such a big part of the cocktail scene that it deserves to be celebrated on World Margarita Day today (February 22).
In Singapore, you can partake in the fun as Cointreau has collaborated with 11 top bars to serve Margaritas with their own unique twist. Of course, one day isn’t enough to enjoy their unique creations that the brand has extended the celebration until March 19.
Here are five bars to get you started:
