National Grand Marnier Day

On July 14th, the National Grand Marnier Day in the United States honors a spirit that adds citrus notes to cocktails and desserts. We've been enjoying the fruits of Grand Marnier's exquisite taste since the 1880s.


In the 1880s, Alexander Marnier-Lapostolle invented the orange liquor. His grand experiment blending fruit liquors with cognac took ten years to succeed. When it did, Lapostolle gave birth to one very expensive spirit. With a strong attitude, too, the cognac concoction blended one of the most expensive fruits of the time with a strong sense of humor. The result was truly grand. Grand Marnier is not only does it add a dash of citrus when mixed into drinks and desserts, but it can also be enjoyed plain.
