Intimate Soirée with Dita Von Teese and Cointreau

It’s not everyday you find yourself face to face with the legendary Dita Von Teese. Petite, curvaceous, sensual, and not much taller than I am. Quietly, she slips behind the bar at Sydney’s Victoria Room, and time stops – a surreal moment to commit to memory.

At the intimate soirée, Dita Von Teese, Global Ambassador for Cointreau, prepares the Dita Fizz, a cocktail created by The Victoria Room‘s Bar Manager, Luke Hanzlicek. The drink celebrates her glamorous lifestyle with a mix of Cointreau, ruby red grapefruit, rose water, mint and topped with soda water.

Taking instructions from the expert, she steals the moment by slapping the mint and giving it a “little spanky” and guests erupt into laughter. The duo then proceed to make a stylish and sophisticated Cosmopolitan with Cointreau, vodka, and a fruity-dry cranberry juice with an orange twist.

After a brief photo opportunity, Dita Von Teese relaxes with guests, looking very much at home in the glamorous surrounds of the Victoria room.
