Celebrate Cinco de Mayo With the Cointreau MargaDita

By  May 05, 2011

Celebrate Cinco de Mayo and all your summer soirées with the Cointreau MargaDita. As the global Cointreauversial ambassador, Dita Von Teese proudly introduces her latest namesake cocktail, a bold and seductive reinvention of the classic Margarita. Dita Von Teese’s tasty new libation pays homage to Margarita Sames, the bon vivante Dallas socialite who created the original recipe in 1948 while vacationing at her Acapulco cliff-side hacienda.

“Margarita Sames was clearly a strong, confident, and stylish woman well known for her entertaining prowess – qualities that I both admire and, hopefully, embody,” says Dita Von Teese. “Her Margarita recipe has been enjoyed for over 60 years and it seemed only natural for me to create my own cocktail as a tribute to this glamorous and charismatic woman.”
