Cointreau’s Perfect Drinks for Hosting a Soiree this Season!

Dita Von Teese and Kyle FordCan you believe November is upon us and the “holiday’s” are right around the corner. Beginning with Thanksgiving in late November and finishing with New Year’s Eve parties and New Year’s Day in January, there are plenty of times to host chic soirees and catch up with friends or family. One of the hard parts to ensuring the success of holiday parties is to make sure the food and drinks are top notch. Fortunately, Cointreau has perfect drink concoctions that will make playing hostess a breeze while guest’s palettes will be genuinely satisfied.

Yesterday afternoon I was invited to participate in the Cointreau Virtual Holiday Soiree hosted live from the home of Dita Von Teese, with cocktail and spirits expert Kyle Ford. Kyle taught attendees how to mix up the three below gems while Dita offered her tips for entertaining. Attendees received a signature Cointreau Cocktail Kit with amazing tools and fresh ingredients to mix their own beverages along with Kyle. These three options not only taste fantastic but are easy to whip up with very little effort meaning the party hostess can enjoy the company of her guests without being stuck in the kitchen for the entire evening. Enjoy!
