Dita Von Teese gets Cointreauversial!

Maybe I can order one of these in Vegas, they would know how to make there, they love Dita just as much as I do...
 "The Cointreau Teese"
Top-drawer French liqueur Cointreau previously celebrated their partnership with new brand ambassador Dita Von Teese at an elaborate event in NYC. The shindig at the Angel Orensanz Center saw the U.S. debut of "Be Cointreauversial," the haute-burlesque dancer's performance, involving a giant martini glass, of course. I would have loved to see it! Cointreau has committed to a collaboration with Von Teese, who I heard is opening up a private club (members only) in the middle of Paris called "Cointreau Prive" where you must have a special bracelet to enter and who knows how much money to be a member? Kinda cool huh?!

The event also served as the debut of the Cointreau Teese, a new cocktail created in Dita's honor using violet syrup. Here's the recipe:

1 ½ oz. Cointreau

¾ oz. apple juice

½ oz. Monin violet syrup

½ oz. fresh lemon juice

Shake and strain into a martini glass with a ginger-frosted rim; garnish with a violet. Bottoms up!
