Cinco de Mayo Drink Ideas and Royal Wedding News from Cointreau!

Cointreau Brand Ambassador and international burlesque star Dita Von Teese has officially launched her latest namesake cocktail the Cointreau MargaDita - and of course, it's right in time for any and all of of your Cinco de Mayo celebrations and summer soirees.  Von Teese calls it a "tantalizing haute-cocktail with a spicy twist."  

Cointreau MargaDita
1.5 oz Cointreau
1.5 oz Silver Tequila
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 oz Monin Rose Syrup
1 pinch Chipotle Sauce
Mix all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.  Shake vigorously and pour into a chilled coup glass.  Garnish with floating organic yellow rose petals.  For an added kick, add a chipotle and salt rim.  

In other news, the Royal Wedding is in the books and one little detail you may not have heard during the extensive coverage, is that Cointreau had a small part in the Royal Day.  The scrumptious Royal Wedding Torte that guests were dining on was made from freshly squeezed orange juice, Cointreau liquor, marzipan, candied orange peel and filled with orange-Cointreau cream.  The final touch includes white icing and marzipan crowns.  Delicious!!!
