Cointreau Fizz, my new gin tonic for the summer

Cointreau is launching a cocktails serie this summer: Cointreau Fizz. Let’s discover some Cointreau Fizz cocktails exclusively with The Foodlish!
I never tried Cointreau in my life before and my first time was few weeks ago at an event in Goodge Street. Cointreau was there presenting their new Cointreau Fizz. And I was too curious to try it. Now, I can’t wait to do it myself!

 

Cointreau – « unique spirit combined with the subtle harmony of bitter and sweet oranges » – is a brand of triple sec (an orange-flavoured liqueur) produced in Saint-Barthélemy-d’Anjou, France. It’s drunk as an apéritif and digestif and is a component of several well-known cocktails. It was originally called « Curaçao Blanco Triple Sec. »
