Keen to get your mitts on Foodism's recipe for one of the best Cointreau cocktails on the market? Well, you're in the right place. This simple blend uses Cointreau, one of the world's best-known brands of triple sec, which is an orange liqueur made using a simple formula of sweet, bitter orange peels and sugar beet alcohol.

It's got a distinctive sweet flavour, meaning you can drink Cointreau as a short drink sans any other ingredients and enjoy as is or, in this instance, mix with zingy lime juice, refreshing sparkling water, orange and ice for a longer drink called a 'Cointreau Fizz'. Pour into an Old Fashioned glass and enjoy. For more simple (and delicious) cocktail recipes, head to our hub.
