THE COINTREAU MARGADITA– the latest collaboration from Dita Von Teese, International Queen of Burlesque, and Cointreau

A Seductive Twist on the Classic Margarita with a Sumptuous Floral Caress, Ending with a Spicy Smack
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo and the summer soirée season with the Cointreau MargaDita – the latest collaboration from Dita Von Teese, International Queen of Burlesque, and Cointreau, the original French triple sec. As the global Cointreauversial ambassador since 2007, Dita Von Teese proudly introduces her latest namesake cocktail, the Cointreau MargaDita, a bold and seductive reinvention of the classic Margarita, the #1 selling cocktail in America. Dita Von Teese’s tasty new libation is a homage to Margarita Sames, the bon vivante Dallas socialite who created the original recipe in 1948 while vacationing at her Acapulco cliffside hacienda. According to Dita Von Teese, “The Cointreau MargaDita is a tantalizing haute-cocktail with a spicy twist.”
“Margarita Sames was clearly a strong, confident, and stylish woman well known for her entertaining prowess – qualities that I both admire and, hopefully, embody,” says Dita Von Teese. “Her Margarita recipe has been enjoyed for over 60 years and it seemed only natural for me to create my own cocktail as a tribute to this glamorous and charismatic woman.”
Dita Von Teese toasts this alluring woman, who unfortunately passed away this past year, by using the classic margarita ingredients as a base for her Cointreau MargaDita cocktail: Cointreau, tequila and fresh lime juice. “I wanted to keep the integrity of the original margarita recipe, but add a personal touch of my own. The juxtaposition of floral notes with spicy elements makes for a seductive twist: aromatic Monin Rose Syrup for a hint of floral, feminine perfume, and a dash of chipotle powder for an unexpected spicy smack. I think Margarita Sames would approve,” says Dita Von Teese.
The new namesake cocktail delivers the ideal combination of Cointreau’s bitter and sweet orange flavors, earthy tequila undertones, refreshing lime juice, and subtle rose notes, complete with a spicy finish. Dita Von Teese’s final tribute to Sames includes a visually stunning yellow rose petal delicately floating atop. The beautiful accent represents “the yellow rose of Texas” in honor of Sames’ native home state where she also hosted similar fabulous parties.
The Cointreau MargaDita is the perfect addition to any summer entertaining soirée at home. Take advice from Dita Von Teese, and throw a Mexican themed dinner party with an intimate group of friends. Serve the Cointreau MargaDita cocktail in a coup glass with a chipotle and salt rim or pre-batch a pitcher of the MargaDita for easy entertaining and serve on the rocks. Any party is sure to be hit!
So, with your Cointreau MargaDita in hand, add a sensual flair to your Cinco de Mayo and summer celebrations.

Salud to Cinco de Mayo with these tequila cocktails in Hong Kong

It’s tequila o’clock.
A lick of salt. A wedge of lime cradled between thumb and pointer finger. Knocking back neat shots of tequila — which so often feels like a one-two-three step performance in and of itself — need not be the only way to imbibe. In fact, a frozen margarita on a sun-drenched day sounds far more appealing. Or, sips of citrusy Palomas in between bites of tacos, sour cream and cilantro-topped guacamole. The following spots are hearty ‘Saluds!’ to tequila-, mezcal- and agave-forward spirits — and the smoky libations created in their honour.
