The Dita Von Teese show in New-York
Cointreau and Global Brand Ambassadress, Dita Von Teese, hosted the New York debut of her performance, the "Be Cointreauversial" show and her new cocktail: Cointreau Teese
World renowned burlesque performer, Dita Von Teese and Cointreau, the famous French orange liqueur, hosted a lavish debut party in New York for their first collaborative effort, the “Be Cointreauversial” show at The Angel Orensanz Foundation at 172 Norfolk Street. Guests included Jason Lewis, Russell Simmons, Porschla Coleman, Nacho Figueras, Andrew Buckler, Adam Lippes, Liz Goldwyn, Hope Atherton, Tara Subkoff, Dylan Lauren, Catherine Malandrino, Nicole Miller, Dayssi Olarte de Kanavos, Kelly Killoren, Aimee Mullins, Simon Hammerstein, Jill Zarin, Countess Luann de Lesseps, Jazleen, RuPaul, Zaldy, Kai Kühne, Casey Spooner, Susanne Bartsch, Traver Rains, and Richie Rich.
Party revellers sipped Cointreaupolitans and Cointreau Margaritas before being treated to the highlight of the night, the unveiling of the “Be Cointreauversial” show. Strutting on stage in her crystal-encrusted costume, designed by Catherine D’Lish (made of 350,000 Swarovski crystals and weighing approximately 75 lb) she posed and flirted with the crowd before plunging into a martini glass. She dazzled the crowd with a performance that proved to be a dizzying blend of grace, wit and pure femininity. The show ended in a brilliant blaze of violet light, as Dita took a sip of a Cointreau Teese and winked at the crowd. Waiters then made their way into the crowd with trays of the new violet-coloured cocktail, The Cointreau Teese.
“With this performance, I wanted to express the sensual and delicious first sip of a Cointreau cocktail, while sparkling with the essence of the Parisian history of the liqueur”, Dita Von Teese revealed.
Violet essence and Cointreau are the heart and soul of the “Cointreau Teese cocktail. The combination of Cointreau’s orange notes with aromatic violet and an added zing of ginger creates a cocktail that like Dita Von Teese: stunning and delicious.
