Grand Marnier


  • A liqueur
  • 40% ABV


An orange liqueur in the vein of Cointreau. A Bar Above has a good writeup on Grand Marnier's unique taste profile:

Grand Marnier tastes sweeter and heavier – even though it actually has fewer carbohydrates per ounce. It also brings the flavors you’d expect in a liqueur made with a barrel-aged spirit: vanilla and an oaky sweetness.

Ultimately, it tends to be a heavier substitute for Cointreau that feels more at home in whiskey-based cocktails where there are other dark elements at play.
