The Cointreau MargaDita
A seductive twist on the classic Margarita with a floral caress and spicy smack
Just in time for Cinco de Mayo the the summer soirée season Dita Von Teese, International Queen of Burlesque, and Cointreau proudly reveal the Cointreau MargaDita, a bold and seductive reinvention of the classic Margarita.
This tasty new libation is a homage to the late Margarita Sames, famous Dallas socialite who created the original Margarita recipe in 1948 while vacationing at her Acapulco Cliffside hacienda.
“Margarita Sames was clearly a strong, confident, and stylish woman well known for her entertaining prowess - qualities that I both admire and, hopefully, embody. 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.” says Dita Von Teese
By using the same ingredients of Cointreau, tequila and fresh lime juice as in the original margarita, Dita Von Teese wanted to keep the integrity of the original recipe while adding her own personal touch.
1 oz Cointreau
1 oz Silver Tequila
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
Bar spoon of Monin Rose Syrup
1 pinch Chipotle Spice
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.
