Weekend Cocktail #7: Cointreau Teese


This year Cointreau, the French liqueur company, chose famed Burlesque queen Dita Von Teese to be their brand ambassador.

In honour of this collaboration, they created the delectable Cointreau Teese. Made with Monin violet syrup, this purple-hued cocktail is perfect for spring soirées and girly get togethers.



Cointreau Teese

  • 1 1/2 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz Apple juice
  • 1/2 oz Monin violet syrup
  • 1/2 oz Fresh lemon juice
  1. Shake ingredients in martini shaker over ice.
  2. Garnish with a lovely contrasting yellow lemon peel (I love purple + yellow together)
  3. If you're feeling extra domestic,  garnish additionally with sugared violets or pansies
