Cointreau is a common ingredient in cocktail recipes. A new iteration of it, however, already is a mix.
Cointreau Noir, just being launched in the U.S., is a blend of the sweet/bitter orange Cointreau liqueur and Rémy Martin cognac. An intriguing combination, indeed, given that Cointreau is made from a 160-year-old recipe and Rémy from a 280-year-old one.
Both spirits are owned by the same company. The Noir (French for "black") carries a suggested retail price of $60 for 750ml bottle, and probably will go for $15 to $18 a glass in bars and lounges.
