Put Cointreau centre stage at your dinner party – it’s a key ingredient of over 350 delicious cocktails. Invented in 1875 by Edouard Cointreau, this crystal-clear liqueur blends sweet and bitter orange peels to create a unique and delicate taste; a perfect balance of sweetness and freshness. In the 40s, American socialite Margaret “Margarita” Sames used Cointreau to create the now-classic Margarita cocktail for one of her famous soirées. Make like Margaret and mix up a margarita for your guests: Combine 30ml Cointreau, 50ml Blanco Tequila and 20ml fresh lime juice, shake with ice and serve in a salt-rimmed margarita glass.
