Happily sipping a freshly made Cointreaupolitan in front of my computer in honour of the ultimate glamour puss Dita Von Teese to toast her limited edition My Cointreau bag (slightly tipsy didn’t follow the recipe to the T, is 30ml about three capfuls?). Exclusive to Selfridges the luxury leather vintage look holdall, unwraps to reveal the perfect ensemble for a glamourous soiree to match Dita’s iconic style. It contains a little book of cocktail recipes, three jars, containing chilli, ginger and cinnamon to add a kick of spice to your drink and a mixing spoon and measuring cup. There is also a pretty little powder compact containing a box of tea, as the Cointreau Ambassadress loves the blend of Cointreau and chilled tea served over ice.
“A woman’s handbag should always contain special accessories that make her happy… hidden moments of pleasure that live inside the pockets. This is how My Cointreau Evening bag was designed. It is an intriguing bag you can carry with you anywhere, to spice up cocktails however you please, depending on the event and your mood. I love to bring it with me to unexpected places, and it makes every experience unforgettable, wherever I go! I love cocktails with a kick… a little bit of spice makes a big difference in a flash, like magic. I let my inspiration guide me, and it makes my cocktails unique and the party cointreauversial. My bag is elegant and bewitching! It has what it takes to create the unpredictable, which is exactly what I love …”
