What is it?
Cointreau has teamed up with underground Soho bar, Cahoots, just in time for Cinco de Mayo to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the original margarita cocktail.
Cinco de Mayo is held annually in Puebla, Mexico on 5th May, celebrating a failed invasion of Mexico by the French in 1862. The Margarita cocktail is said to have been invented by Dallas socialite Margarita Sames, when she made the drink for her guests at her Acapulco holiday home in 1948 (although there are plenty of other stories about its origin).
The 1940s themed bar Cahoots, will celebrate with a tequila-tastic knees up on Saturday 5th May, and continue through the entire month with a variety of cocktails paying homage to the Margarita, with a 1940s twist.
Cinco de Mayo will be celebrated with Cointreau-based concoctions such as You’ll Never Smile Again, made with Tequila Enemigo Cristallino, Cointreau orange liqueur, lime, lemon, fresh basil and Cahoots herbal wine. And of course, cocktail lovers can also enjoy a classic margarita.
Cahoots late night bar, transports guests back in time to post-war 1940s to a disused underground tube station for drinking, dancing and sing-a-longs around an old piano.
