Margarita Loves Cointreau

Celebrating the 70th anniversary of Margarita and Cointreau at The Island!

Cointreau has long been inseparable from the original “margarita” since the cocktail’s creation in 1948 in Acapulco, Mexico. Margaret “Margarita” Sames, a wealthy American socialite known for hosting famously lavish parties with extravagant twists, created a whole new cocktail for one of her soirées by mixing two of her favorite spirits: tequila and Cointreau, a liqueur from the Loire Valley in France crafted using a perfect balance of sweet and bitter orange peel essences. An immediate success, the drink came to be known as the “margarita” and has gone on to become a staple in bars and homes alike. 

Nothing's is quite the same as Cointreau, the avant-garde & Parisian style spirit that enables mixologists the versatility to explore limitless cocktail variations, and has long been the heart of cocktails. This brings to the fore the spirit of the Soiree to it beckons in laid-back fashion to a festive celebration of conviviality, both an exhilarating and refreshing tropical joie de vivre!

In tribute to the 70th year of its creation, the “Margarita Loves Cointreau” event in partnership with The Island at the Palace and Jose Cuervo Tradicional paying homage to the famous party where the classic cocktail was born. Tropical touches and Acapulco inspired colors accent the event venue at the poolside of the Island, 9th Avenue, 32nd street, Uptown Bonifacio, BGC Taguig... a tres-tres chic’ tropical enclave in the heart of a bustling Bonifacio Global, where guests will enjoy fun activities that will include live DJ music, great food, camaraderie and surprise twists reminiscent of the famous Acapulco soirees hosted by Margaret Sames.

“A margarita without Cointreau is not worth its salt.” – Margaret Sames
