My fave! Richer orange flavor than an Orange flavored vodka but without the over sticky sweetness of a heavy cordial
Edouard-Jean Cointreau crafted his own style of the sought-after triple sec product with a higher ABV and more forward orange flavor; Cointreau’s liqueur is the best-known triple sec in the world today.
Other well-known orange liqueurs include Blue Curaçao, (a Dutch liqueur that uses lahara fruit peels and blue food dye) and Grand Marnier (a French creation that combines Cognac brandy and bitter orange liqueur).
Most orange-flavored liqueurs are affordable and easy to find, and you can opt for any orange liqueur in lieu of triple sec in your preferred cocktails.
Like so many other liqueurs, triple sec’s success can be credited to the French — in the early 19th century, a confectioner named Jean-Baptiste Combier and his wife Josephine experimented with steeping exotic Caribbean orange peels in sugar cane alcohol. The resulting liqueur, called “triple sec,” actually applies more to the triple distillation process than the specific product.

The Original Margarita
The Original Margarita was created in 1948 when Dallas socialite Margarita Sames mixed her two favorite spirits, Cointreau and tequila, together with lime juice while vacationing in Acapulco. This original recipe has stood the test of over 70 years' time. As Margarita Sames said, "A Margarita without Cointreau is not worth its salt."
The Cosmopolitan was created by Toby Cecchini in New York City at The Odeon in 1988. Cecchini took an existing, imperfect cocktail making the rounds in San Francisco and added Cointreau and fresh juices, establishing the elegant recipe that tipped the world into the modern craft cocktail movement. This blush pink cocktail has an established history as one of the most well-known classic cocktails, and certainly the most iconic drink to emerge from the 80s. A mainstay at top bars around the world, The Cosmopolitan has influenced pop culture - from the big screen to fashion runways - and remains a cocktail of choice for tastemakers worldwide.
