Enjoy modern classic with these Cointreau cocktails

Transform your cocktail moments this Christmas with the new-look Cointreau. Brought to you in partnership with Cointreau


Cointreau, the iconic French orange liqueur that’s at the heart of hundreds of cocktails, now boasts an elegant new look and a sustainable focus.

The updated bottle still has that iconic square shape but now the label champions the brand’s distillery and the oranges that sit at the very heart of Cointreau.

Convenience and practicality are also to the fore, with a slight increase in the height of the bottle – to make it easier to hold – and a textured cap, reminiscent of the skin of an orange, which provides better grip for an easier twist-off.

The new bottle is made of two-thirds recycled glass, an indication of the brand’s dedication to sustainability behind the scenes. Cointreau is collaborating with two international public institutes on research programmes around the preservation of the sweet and bitter orange trees. Today, 64 per cent of orange tree crops grown for the house of Cointreau are Global G.A.P or Rainforest Alliance certified. The brand has also reduced water consumption by 45 per cent and by opting for renewable energy Cointreau has reduced CO2 emissions in its bottling and distillation operations by almost 90 per cent.

For decades, a bottle of Cointreau has been a drinks cabinet essential – not least because it can be used in over 500 cocktail recipes. While it works beautifully in the most elaborate of concoctions sometimes simplicity is best, allowing the quality of ingredients to speak for itself.

One of the world’s most iconic drinks – the margarita – is the perfect example of this and Cointreau has been an essential part of its story since the very beginning.

Invented in 1948 by Margaret Sames, a Dallas socialite, the true margarita has just three ingredients: Cointreau, tequila, and lime and the original recipe, below, is still used and loved today, over 70 years later. Why not give it a try yourself this festive season?
