GRAND MARNIER® 2013 Summer Cocktail

GRAND MARNIER® introduces its 2013 Summer Cocktails with fun and refreshing concoction by reknown bartenders Adam Devermann. In 1880, Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle created the now famous GRAND MARNIER® liqueur, a subtle blend of nobility from the finest cognacs and the unique flavour from the essences of tropical oranges. It quickly became a huge success at the most prestigious receptions across Europe and North America as well as the world’s most refined bars. Today, GRAND MARNIER® liqueur may be enjoyed in countless cocktails and long drinks, as well as neat or on ice, if one prefers to enjoy the purity of its incomparable smoothness.
GRAND MARNIER® continues to inspire new creations and trends. The world’s top professionals use GRAND MARNIER® for the refinement that the liqueur brings to their creations.
