Mirasoul is a bit of a dark horse on the dining scene. It is located at the end of Caxton Street, and is a funky little place to go for cocktails. They also offer a selection of tapas, pizza, pasta and risotto and their wine list stocks over 40 Aussie and NZ wines. I never really hear anyone talking about it, but everytime I've been, the cocktails have been fab.
Whilst we didn't eat there this time, I have eaten at Mirasoul on a number of occasions before and I am planning to go back soon, particularly because they have some awesome house meatballs and some great enticing deals (I'll list them below.)
Enticing seems to be a theme, because the cocktails here, well to be honest, kick arse. There are heaps of house specials like, my personal favourite, the pink diamond and even better, if you let the bar staff know what you like (and they aren't hideously busy) they are happy to customise something for you! Perfect for when you can't decide or are feeling adventurous. After hearing me rave, I.P ordered the pink diamond- with Strawberries and passionfruit shaken with 42 Below Passionfruit vodka, Massenez Liqueur de Lychee , apple juice and elderflower cordial. Garnished with fresh passionfruit fruit in for $16ish. She loved every sip, and when she want to the toilet, I must admit, I did sneak a couple of sips. Oh Lychee liquer with passionfruit vodka- I do love you.
I had a custom made cocktail with spanish vanilla vodka with kiwifruit. It was refreshing and vanillery (I requested vanilla vodka) and went down far too quickly! Mine was $16 too. It's a pity we had to continue on our tour, because I would have loved to have stayed for a while and had some more cocktails i.e. The Bjock - but it is well known that too many cocktails will make me very drunk, so I had to limit myself. This was after all, for research, and what good is researching if I can't remember the results!!??
I would recommend checking out mirasoul in the week, because on the weekends it does get pretty busy and I have been seated at a really cramped table. Sunday night was awesome because there were only a couple of other groups of people there. We were seated on comfy lounges looking out at the rain so we knew when we could make a quick dash to the next cocktail bar on our list. Libertine, here we come.
