Dita Von Teese Launches Cointreau® MargaDita

Dallas was sizzling last week, and not just because of soaring summer temps.  Dita Von Teese, Cointreau® Brand Ambassador and International Queen of Burlesque officially launched her latest namesake cocktail, the Cointreau® MargaDita with a sizzling summer soiree at Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek.

In a vibrantly colored vintage dress accented with a flowing green and yellow sash, Dita completed her look by donning custom-made Christian Louboutin heels paired with a feathered purse, also from Louboutin. 

Over 150 party-goers were treated to delectable cocktails prepared by The Mansion Bar's head mixologist Rocco Milano, including Dita's signature drink, the Cointreau® MargaDita, as well as other Cointreau® sips - the original Side Car and the specially-created Deconstructed Cosmopolitan - molecular spheres of the traditional cocktail presented on a serving spoon.  In addition, guests enjoyed the evening with hors d'oeuvres of goat cheese-stuffed gougeres with piquillo and basil, smoked short rib tostados with chipotle cream and cilantro and shrimp and spicy black bean skewers - which perfectly complemented the spicy and sweet MargaDita. 

According to Dita, "The Cointreau® MargaDita is a tantalizing haute-cocktail with a spicy twist."
