CAKETAIL CONTEST: the contest video!

Highlights that will remain in our memories! The concept of Caketails imagined by RÉMY COINTREAU GASTRONOMIE is a new tasting offer, such as gourmet coffee or tea time. It also provides an answer to how to make cocktails even more attractive while offering chefs and sommeliers/bartenders a new and original concept, commercially viable. At a time when foodpairing and the techniques of the world of pastry and cooking are "shaken and stirred" like a Margarita or a Cosmopolitan, all emulsions are positive! See you in 2023 for the second edition!
