Three cocktail recipes with Cointreau

On Wednesday, I had the chance to invite Thomas Timmermans, elected best bartender of Belgium in 2019, to do a live class together with me on Instagram.

Today, Thomas is above all a Cointreau ambassador, a brand with more than 150 years of history and experience. The perfect opportunity to prepare together a Margarita – one of Cointreau’s iconic cocktails and my personal favorite – but not only. We also made a Cointreau Mule – simple as it can be -, and a Cointreau Christmas Brew with coffee, ideal for the holidays.

It was fun, super easy, and I learned a lot of little tips! If you missed the live show, you can watch it again here.

And now, let’s get to the cocktail recipes!

Our favorite restaurants’ Christmas menus

for this seasons’s
holiday dinners

This year, we’ll be celebrating Christmas in small groups. Not only we’re not super thrilled about the idea, but the perspective of spending the whole day cooking for only 2 to 3 people is making us doubt a little.
Restaurants are not about to open again anytime soon, and we’d still love to support them as much as we can. So an idea came to mind – quite an obvious one to be honest. We’ll order our Christmas menu at our favorite restaurants this year.
Perfect, that’s settled then.

But we still have to choose which one.
We’ve made a list of our favorite Christmas menus, made by our favorite chefs, available for you this year.
The ball is in your court.

Here we go again. We’re not gonna lie, this second closing of the bars and restaurant is simply dramatic, and some may not be able to live through the winter.

We can help them to stay alive. If you usually eat out a lot, don’t change your habits now. Every order counts.

Keep eating out, but only at home this time. Our favorite restaurant owners have put in place extremely high quality solutions to help you stay loyal to them. Here are just a few of them.
