...seen in late October 2012 at the 'My Cointreau Evening by Dita Von Teese' photo series shot by Ali Mahdavi. The story of the campaign centers around a feminine handbag in vintage style which is equipped with a cocktail minibar after tips by Dita Von Teese.
Additionally, Cointreau Ambassadress Dita Von Teese provides hints for drinking manners. Her tip for the best time to enjoy a cocktail: "When you enjoy a cocktail isn't really important; what matters is who you are with at the time."

In one hand she holds a romantic early 20th century umbrella, in the other the white Cointreau vintage handbag with orange fruit print and two amber colored leather straps. Photographer of the image is Ali Mahdavi.

The book 'Cointreauversial' provides recipes such as for 'Cointreau Fizz Classic' with lime, soda water and "a pinch of cinnamon for a feminine touch...".
