Grand Marnier Cadillac Margarita
Grand Marnier® Cordon Rouge, created in 1880 by Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle, is a delicious orange-flavored liqueur. This delicious concoction is a complex combination of Cognac, the essence of bitter oranges, and sugar. These ingredients provide the aficionado’s palate with joy and a reason to use Grand Marnier® as an upgrade for Triple Sec.
Additionally, because the “bitter orange” taste goes well in margaritas, this liqueur is usually the main ingredient in a Cadillac Margarita.
Enjoying Grand Marnier® Cordon Rouge
There are many ways one may enjoy this wonderful libation. Many people consume Grand Marnier® Cordon Rouge “neat” (room temperature). We polled recent graduates from Riverside Bartending School, and they seemed to favor it shaken. Consequently, we often suggest that this liqueur served shaken. Perfectly shaken, the process adds about 23% ice-cold water to the mix. Therefore much of the “80 proof bite” is reduced.
