I use this lovely orange flavored liqueur in loads of recipes. Probably the most popular is the "Margarita".

How to Make Homemade Grand Marnier

Step-by-Step

  1. Place zest and sugar in a small bowl. Mash together with the back of a wooden spoon or a muddle. Continue until sugar is absorbed into zest. Place in a container with a tight seal, preferably glass. Add cognac and glycerin; stir and seal.
  2. Allow to age in a cool, dark place 2 to 3 months. Shake monthly. After initial aging, strain and filter. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Cap and age 3 months more before serving.
  3. Note: Seville oranges produce the authentic taste but any type of orange peel/zest may be used with good results.
