Night Time Walks with Alfred Cointreau


Alfred Cointreau, 6th generation of the Cointreau family is a world traveler. As world traveler do he can talk for hours about his discoveries. He now has compiled all his adventures in a new book on bars around the world

Being Brand Heritage Manager of Cointreau Alfred travels the world and visits bars where this great orange liquor is poured. In this book he lets the reader enjoy the travel anecdotes he loves to share. He writes about his favourite bar spots in every continent around the world. 

In Antwerp he did it a bit differently and went on a night walk tour with Tanguy Ottomer, Antwerp's most famous guide. I was there when he presented his book and discovered places in my home town I had never seen before. From hidden medieval courtyards to the latest boutique hotel bar. We went on a real night time walk of discoveries with Alfred and Tanguy, while having the occasional Cointreau cosmopolitan!

Alfred also taught us how to shake a classic Cointreau cocktail like a pro: the sidecar.

The Sidecar

3 cl Cointreau
5 cl cognac
2 cl fresh lime juice

Pour the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice cubes
Shake well
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with an orange twist

'Night Time Walks' is an ideal present for every cocktail and travel lover. It costs 17,50 and you can order it on Tanguy Ottomer's website. Don't forget to check out Tanguy's themes tours too for your next visit to Antwerp.
