Cointreau Waldorf

Warning : Sweet cocktail alert !!!

Do you like sweet cocktails ? I really don’t.

If you don’t like drinks like Cointreau on ice, move on to another article. If you do like it, read on… it’s a tasty but rather sweet cocktail.

I know some of you really like sweet cocktails, so once in a blue moon I also post a sweeter recipe. Most sweet cocktails are what I’d call “spiked juices”, I really don’t want to share too much of those. Today I’m sharing an old classic which is a more boozy kind of sweeter drink. While the original Waldorf cocktail is based on rye whiskey, the “Cointreau Waldorf” is based on Cointreau orange-liqueur. It might be interesting to experiment with different curacao or triple sec brands.
This is a stirred cocktail with three sweet ingredients. And yes, I also go into diabetic shock just by reading this… but the vermouth also adds an interesting herbal touch to the recipe.

Another interesting experiment would be to serve this drink on ice and go Americano style by adding some soda or tonic to lighten up the sweetness.

Cointreau Waldorf

60 ml Cointreau
30 ml Sweet vermouth
½ bs grenadine

Stir the ingredients together in a mixing glass with lots of ice. Stir for 30 seconds because you really want this cocktail to be very chilled. Strain in a prechilled coupe. Add a cocktail cherry.
