What comes to mind when you think of summer? For me it’s beautiful weather, the beach, warm nights, social events, fun and refreshing drinks – just like Cointreau Fizz. And now that the weather is heating up, I can’t wait to enjoy some chilled, refreshing drinks by Cointreau!
I’m always interested the drinks menu when I go out and especially at events. I guess you can say I’m a fussy drinker but I mean drinks aren’t just for consumption but to enjoy, right? If I’m not drinking good champagne or smooth wine, I’m all about the cocktails. Actually, you know what – I prefer cocktails over any alcoholic beverage, really! Maybe it’s a girl thing, or that I have a love for fruit and sweet treats – or both. One of my favorite cocktails being anything that includes Cointreau and more recently, the fun variety of Cointreau Fizz cocktails. They look fabulous, taste amazing, fun to drink and actually quite easy to create!
So what better way to showcase some of the delicious flavours and combinations of Cointreau Fizz than by a special editorial I produced with Jesse and the Cointreau team, featuring a selection of their Cointreau Fizz flavours. I’m so excited to announce this special collaboration and to show you all the images and just how gorgeous the drinks are – and I wish you could experience the taste through these images but I guess you gotta experience a Cointreau Fizz yourself!
Cointreau Fizz cocktails are quite simple, fun and easy to make. The main ingredients are Cointreau (of course), sparkling water, some fruit and ice. Variations include orange, strawberry and mint and raspberry (seen in the below images) which are just some of my favourites along with cucumber and basil, tea and mint, passion fruit and chilli and the classic with lime. They’re as tasty as they are elegant – and rightfully so, being French!
Whether you’re entertaining, out for drinks – or just chilling at home – try a flavour and see what I mean. But remember, drink responsibly!
Big love to Cointreau!
