Creative composition wins Cointreau Fizz competition

Cointreau Fizz winner Christian

A twisted classic using the flavours of jasmine tea, apples and mimosa was named the best in a bartender competition run for Cointreau liqueur.

Christian Aggia from restaurant and bar German Gymnasium in London’s King’s Cross created the drink, Symphonie No 4, as a twist on a classic Cointreau Fizz.

He was inspired by the four elements of Cointreau – the ingredients and the shape of the bottle – as well as his own abilities as a musician.

Christian served the cocktail paired with jellies made with Cointreau. The drink will be listed at German Gymnasium for one year.

The judges were Sandrae Lawrence of The Cocktail Lovers with Robert Carmichael, Valentine Le Gouche and Benjamin Negre from Rémy Cointreau UK.

The idea behind the competition was to create a twist on the Cointreau Fizz which was first mentioned in Jean Lupoiu’s Cocktails Book of 1948.
