Recently we shot a cinemagraph series for Cointreau, an orange-flavored liqueur produced in Saint-Barthélemy-d’Anjou, France, which brought in a flurry of butterflies and easy summer cocktail recipes into the studio. Light, simple and delicious I found them to be the perfect charming drink to serve your guests and friends this summer holiday weekend without finding yourself spending too much time crafting a cocktail.
The Cointreau Fizz
-1 1/2 oz of Cointreau
-1/2 fresh lime
-3 oz soda water
Into the glass squeeze the wedges of 1/2 lime, fill the glass with ice and add Cointreau and top off with soda water. Voila!
The Original Cointreau Rickey
