Award-winning actor, director, writer, and producer Dan Levy and a few of his friends want you to join them for their favorite drink and some helpful hints to make this holiday season a festive success.
Levy, chef Candice Kumai, and interior designer Breegan Jane, are teaming with Cointreau, the essential ingredient at the heart of more than 500 classic cocktails including The Cosmopolitan, to share their tips to remove the stress and create festive fun this season. Of course, that includes plenty of one particular cocktail.
“In a shock to absolutely nobody, my favorite holiday cocktail is the iconic Cosmopolitan,” Dan Levy said in a statement. “Fortunately for me, it’s also easy to make with just four simple ingredients - Cointreau, vodka, fresh lime juice, and a festive splash of cranberry juice. A failsafe, timeless classic.”
“We’re excited to continue our partnership with Dan Levy over the coming holiday season,” Nicolas Beckers, President, and CEO at Rémy Cointreau America, echoed. “Cointreau is all about bringing people together to catch up over their favorite cocktails, and this season, the holidays start with a Cosmo.”
The Cosmopolitan was created by Toby Cecchini in New York City in 1988, and became an instant mainstay cocktail. And now you can sip your Cosmo knowing it’s for a good cause, helping support the hospitality industry hard-hit by the global economic slowdown.
Cointreau is proud to partner with Tales of the Cocktail Foundation in support of the hospitality industry this year for its annual Cosmos for a Cause campaign. Anyone who enjoys a Cosmo at a local hot spot can partake in the campaign, as Cointreau will donate a portion of sales, up to $100,000, for every Cosmo ordered at participating bars and restaurants between October 15 – December 31, 2022.
