THE COINTREAU POOLSIDE SOIREES
AT THE BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL

July 11, 2012 - Cointreau's global ambassador Dita Von Teese launched the Cointreau poolside soiree series at the Beverly Hills Hotel, in celebration of the hotel's 100 year anniversary, with a brand new burlesque performance. For the new show, Dita drew inspiration from Betty Grable and Carmen Miranda to create a tropical feeling show which compliments the ideal summer cocktail, the Margarita, and her twist on it, the "Margadita". For the costume, Von Teese collaborated with uk designer Jenny Packham and added jewelry by Michael Schmidt, shoes by Christian Louboutin, and elaborate feather fans made by Catherine D'Lish, all embellished with Swarovski crystals. The launch event also featured a performance by the synchronized swimming sensations the Aqualillies. The poolside series will continue during the summer, and marks the first time that the historic property has opened their poolside and cabanas to the public.

DITA VON TEESE
IS NOW THE FACE OF ADVERTISEMENTS FOR

COINTREAU

AND

COINTREAU NOIR











DITA VON TEESE, THE NEW MUSE OF THE COINTREAU BRAND, UNVEILED HER NEW SHOW 'BE COINTREAUVERSIAL' AND THE 'COINTREAU TEESE' COCKTAIL.

Dita Von Teese and Cointreau, the famous orange liqueur, are delighted to officially announce their partnership. The partnership will last for two years and create a rich variety of ideas, including a Dita Von Teese cocktail and a new Burlesque show.

The first 'Dita Von Teese for Cointreau' event took place in December 2007 in London, followed by the US debut in New York in April 2008, Tokyo in August 2009, and Sao Paulo in October 2009.

The live show is an evocation of the Cointreau world, a world that Dita Von Teese has herself discovered and which has completely won her over. Cointreau and its unique 'French touch' has thrived for more than 160 years without changing anything, from the shape of its legendary bottle to its delicate and instantly recognisable flavours. It was only natural that this iconic bottle should join the glamorous world of Dita Von Teese and her carefully crafted character, a blend of retro and modernity, that little je ne sais quoi, a freedom of thought that extends far beyond any diktats one might apply.

Featuring a Cointreau-inspired cocktail glass that stands over five feet tall, the 'Be Cointreauversial' performance showcases Dita in a brand new orange-hued costume adorned in hundreds of thousands of Swarovski crystals, complete with a one of a kind, nine foot feather boa complete with jewel-encrusted tassels, and custom-made Christian Louboutin stilettos. The 'Be Cointreauversial' show will be touring in 2008 and 2009. Stay tuned to Dita's calendar to find out when it will be in a city near you!!

Following the debut of the performance, guests were invited to taste the Cointreau Teese cocktail, developed by Dita and special mixologists in Paris. Dita adores the violet, that falsely shy and deliciously quaint flower, with its powdery scent and divine colour so evocative of the nostalgic Paris of which Arletty sung, a light tune with delicately perfumed notes.

So when Cointreau asked Dita Von Teese to create her own cocktail, it was clear that the violet would be not just a key ingredient, but the very heart and soul of this cocktail.

Cointreauversial That little extra touch of soul that triggers a unique sensation when blended with Cointreau's orange notes, an endlessly surprising dance of startling aromas.

This "flower-cocktail" is given extra zing by the delicate touch of fresh ginger on the rim of the glass, a flamboyant touch that Dita insisted upon! Clearly there was only one name for such a cocktail: The Cointreau Teese, in homage to its creator.

The recipe:

4 cl Cointreau
2 cl apple juice
1.5 cl Monin violet
1.5 cl fresh lemon juice

Frost with ginger around the rim of the glass

A cocktail that you will soon be able to sip in the trendiest bars on the planet.

About Cointreau
Created more than 150 years ago in Angers, France, Cointreau is the world's most famous crystal clear spirits. Cointreau's distinctive square-shaped bottle, with rounded shoulders and warm amber color is recognized worldwide, as well as its subtle taste - a perfect balance of bitter and sweet orange peels grown and meticulously selected for their quality. Cointreau is best known as being a key ingredient in the most popular cocktail in the US; the Margarita. In 1948, socialite Margarita Sames combined Cointreau, tequila and lime to create the original margarita. In addition, Cointreau is an essential ingredient in top shelf cocktails, like the Sidecar, the Cosmopolitan, and the Cointreaupolitan, its newest interpretation which is the latest hit in trendy bars throughout Europe. Its versatility, defined by its capacity to combine the richness of its flavors and aroma, make it a perfect choice neat or on ice.

Today, more than 13 million Cointreau bottles are sold worldwide and Cointreau remains the authentic choice of many top bartenders in the smartest and most fashionable bars.
