Light amber color. A blend of oranges, clementines and tangerines create an alluring citrus aroma. Warmly spiced on the palate, deeply concentrated orange flavor includes a slight bitterness that balanced the sweetness in the mouth.
Grand Marnier (French pronunciation: [g??~ ma?nje]) is a liqueur created in 1880 by Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle. It is made from a blend of true cognacs and distilled essence of bitter orange. Grand Marnier is 40% alcohol (70 Proof in UK, 80 Proof in US). It is produced in several varieties, most of which can be consumed "neat" as a digestif and can be used in mixed drinks and desserts. In France this kind of use is the most popular especially with Crêpes Suzette and "crêpes au Grand Marnier". César Ritz reportedly came up with the name "Grand Marnier" for Marnier-Lapostolle, who in return helped him purchase and establish the Hotel Ritz Paris.
