If you have never tried Grand Marnier, now is the day to do it!
Grand Marnier is a blend of cognac (snooty brandy, yum) and orange liqueur made from Caribbean oranges. It is a complex delight that can be consumed in several different ways.
Neat – pour some of this elixir into a glass and sip to your heart’s content
Margarita – use as the orange liqueur in a margarita for a more complex flavor
