As much as we love the whole male/female cocktail sharing thing, sometimes even we decide to go it alone. Take the Cointreau Rendez-Vous Privé for example. They might not say it in so many words, but there’s no getting away from the fact that it’s designed to appeal to the ladies. Cue Mr G propping up a bar somewhere while Ms S gets the girls round to Cocktail Towers…
Talk about stress-free hosting, all she has to do is choose a few of her favourite female friends (dressing up is obligatory; cocktail lovers are an absolute must) and a professional Cointreau mixologist takes care of the rest. That means turning up with all the kit required for a pop-up cocktail party including plenty of bottles, an armful of shakers and limited-edition goody bags for all the guests.
The evening starts with a brief history of cocktails (just enough to be in the know, not so much that boredom sets in) then on to the exciting stuff – shaking up a Cointreaupolitan, Cointreau St. Clements, Cointreau Cobbler and Cointreau Margarita. Next, a photo gets taken and uploaded on the Cointreau Rendez-Vous Privé website for global ambassador Dita von Teese to choose and award a prize to the most glamorous gathering.
Sounds like great fun (perfect for hen nights) and fantastic value at £20 per person, including four cocktails each and a limited-edition goody bag. Full review coming soon.
