We attended the most wonderful seminar at the EpCoT International Food & Wine Festival called ‘Taste, Shake and Indulge Like the French’. Billed as a ‘spirited tasting of the No. 1 French liqueur, Grand Marnier’, the seminar did not disappoint!
Before the seminar, I only thought of Grand Marnier as a mixer for cocktails or as a flavoring in some familair dishes (Crêpes Suzette, Duck a l’orange, etc.). After the seminar, I gained a greater appreciation for the orange-flavored spirit and even, learned how to make a yummy and refreshing cocktail!
I present to you, the Grand Smash.
4 chunks fresh lemon (½ lemon)
6-8 mint leaves
