    My fave! Richer orange flavor than an Orange flavored vodka but without the over sticky sweetness of a heavy cordial



Triple sec is a category of drinks — specifically, a group of dry orange liqueurs — and Cointreau is one of them. On its own, the term “triple sec” can be a bit confusing, as it refers to both a category of liqueurs and, more colloquially, to a family of inexpensive, low-quality orange liqueurs. That’s why it’s important to distinguish between Cointreau and triple sec: Cointreau is stronger, smoother, and has far more complexity to it than your average triple sec, with a smooth orange flavor that walks a fine line between sweetness and bitterness.
The abstract answer is that the ingredients of the margarita are totally up to you, the mixologist, the artist, the Picasso of liquor (Drink-asso?). However, in reality, you definitely need Cointreau instead of a cheap triple sec or orange liqueur. The main reason for this is that Cointreau promises a well-balanced margarita that doesn’t veer too strongly into either sweetness or bitterness. The difference between a Cointreau margarita and a standard triple sec margarita is obvious.
Cointreau is a versatile liqueur that goes well with a range of citrus juices, coffee or hot chocolate, hot or cold apple cider, or sour mix and club soda. You can also drink Cointreau with amaretto or dry sparkling wine, or mix it in a cocktail with some tangy lime juice, orange, ice, and sparkling water — this is the classic Cointreau Fizz cocktail. Don’t be afraid to try Cointreau straight, as well, because it’s got a lovely sweet flavor that’s great on its own.
Cointreau is one of the most recognizable and trusted names in the universe of orange liqueurs, so giving a bottle to someone as a gift is a great gesture. Cointreau is crafted in Saint-Barthélemy-d'Anjou in France and is considered an essential ingredient in a wide range of cocktails — including, of course, the margarita. If your gift recipient enjoys mixing cocktails and having a colorful bottle of high-quality liqueur on their shelf, Cointreau won’t disappoint.

The Original Margarita

  • tequila

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 

  • vodka

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.

The Mango Margarita

  • mezcal
