World famous orange liqueur brand Cointreau and South Place Hotel have collaborated to bring a slice of Acapulco and its vibrant atmosphere to the Secret Garden at South Place Hotel, from June 29th until the end of August, with a truly tropical Margarita Loves Cointreau pop-up.
Nestled on the first floor of South Place Hotel in East London, the Secret Garden, a veritable oasis of waterfalls and palm trees sets the scene for Cointreau’s celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the original Margarita cocktail.
Taking inspiration from Acapulco where “Margarita” Sames, famously said of her instantly iconic concoction, “a Margarita without Cointreau is not worth its salt’. The partnership pays homage to the iconic cocktail and its origins by introducing delicious, innovative, Margarita inspired cocktails, as well as the original. The menu includes, a lavender Margarita, a fruity twist and a citrus chai Margarita which are all perfectly suited to alfresco drinking in the sunshine. And, with a retractable roof in case of changeable British weather and indoor heaters to hand, the uniquely inviting space will maintain a tropical climate all year round.
Kamil Winnicki, Bar Manager says of the partnership “South Place Hotel is very excited to celebrate the 70th birthday of one of the most iconic cocktails together with the Cointreau family. I am sure that the collaboration between the two brands and the uniqueness of our Secret Garden will create an amazing experience to all guests. Our mixologists are looking forward to present South Place Hotel’s takes on the Margarita and serve it alongside everyone’s favourite classic liqueur.”
What’s more there will be a phone at the bar – a direct line for consumers to ring up and order a Margarita any time of day whilst enjoying the calming sounds of waterfalls in this hidden gem right in the heart of London.
