Behold the Spicy Margarita with Cointreau.

Like cheese, it goes with everything.

Fire in cocktail form.

Turn up the heat with the Cointreau Spicy Marg.

Did you know Cointreau is part of the margarita’s DNA? Just ask its mother, Margarita Sames. She first mixed Cointreau, tequila and lime juice together on a trip to Acapulco back in 1948. And boom, Margarita junior was born. Now we just added a little heat. And who doesn’t love something that’s more than 70 years old with a little spice? (RIP Betty.)
