Dita Von Teese and Cointreau Will Kickoff the Opening of Tales of the Cocktail With “Be Cointreauversial” Burlesque Act
At the end of this month, Dita Von Teese, the international queen of Burlesque and Brand Ambassadress to Cointreau, will be performing her sultry “Be Cointreauversial” burlesque act during the opening performance of Tales of The Cocktail at The House of Blues in New Orleans, LA. This is the first time this particular act will be performed in New Orleans, the birthplace of burlesque.
“I’m very excited to bring my “Be Cointreauversial” burlesque show to New Orleans for Tales of a Cocktail,” says Dita Von Teese, “New Orleans has a rich history in burlesque… it’s a unique and sensual city that I’ve always loved, so I’m thrilled to make a return at last with the New Orleans’ debut of one of my favorite shows!”
But the Dita Von Teese experience doesn’t stop there, folks. Event guests will also be given the opportunity to enjoy Dita’s signature cocktail, the ‘Cointreau Teese’ (recipe below), along with other Cointreau cocktails, while watching the show. The opening performances will culminate with Dita Von Teese appearing on stage in one of her famous poses, bathing in a life size Cointreau glass, embellished with Swarovski crystals.
“We’re ecstatic that Cointreau will be bringing Dita Von Teese’s “Be Cointreauversial” performance to Tales of the Cocktail this year.” — Ann Tuennerman, Founder of Tales of the Cocktail, recently interviewed in Issue 12 of Mutineer Magazine, currently on newsstands. “Her performance will be the perfect beginning to what is sure to be an exciting week; and what better way to start the festivities than with Cointreau cocktails?”
