Cointreau is more than just a triple sec; it’s an orange liqueur distilled from a blend of sweet and bitter orange peels, enhancing the flavor of cocktails. Crafted in Saint-Barthélemy-d’Anjou, France, it holds a special place in the history of the Margarita. The original Margarita cocktail was born when Dallas socialite Margarita Sames combined her two favorite spirits, Cointreau and tequila, along with lime juice while vacationing in Acapulco in 1948. This timeless recipe has remained a beloved classic for over 75 years.

Join Cointreau and Londres 126 in celebrating the rich heritage and irresistible charm of the Margarita. Raise your glasses to 75 years of Margarita magic!
