The original French triple sec gets a dash of Dita

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

As if the idea of a perfect cocktail with just a splash of Cointreau-the luxury triple sec-wasn’t a glamorous enough image to meditate on, why not add a little dash of Dita. Yes, Dita von Teese has teamed up with the spirits purveyor to create the newest in luxury travel items; a portable mini bar stocked with all the necessary ingredients for the perfect drink. The leather box opens up to reveal jigger, bar spoon, vintage-inspired glasses, shakers and an atomizer that, like the spritz of a woman’s signature scent, sprays the perfect amount of Cointreau to compliment any beverage.

Designed to reflect Ms. Von Teese’s affinity for hats and hatboxes that adorned the heads and arms of the most glamorous women of the turn of the century. Set to launch in November, the kit which will retail for $399 will also be available through exclusive deals with Morgans Hotel Group; a national boutique hotel company. Whether you take it along while you to jet set the globe, or whip it out toimpress your friends at a private dinner party, with My Cointreau® Travel Essentials.
