The Grand Classics: Description and Recipe
The Grand Sidecar
The Sidecar is a drink from the golden era of cocktails, and this update – The Grand Sidecar – elevates a classic recipe by adding an elegant complexity.
The Grand Sidecar effortlessly marries the citrus notes of Cordon Rouge’s bitter orange essence with the intensity of cognac. As Grand Marnier contains 51% cognac, it lends itself to making a perfect Sidecar.
To create this perfectly balanced and refreshing cocktail, combine 50ml Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge, 20ml Cognac and 20ml fresh lemon juice in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake vigorously until well chilled, then strain into a glass and serve.
The Grand Collins
Playful yet elegant, this riff on the Tom Collins brings some fun to cocktail hour. The notes of cognac within the Grand Marnier give this drink a multi-layered complexity – adding a refined twist to the original recipe.
To start building this intriguing drink, add ice cubes up to the rim of a tall glass. Then, combine 50ml Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge with 15ml fresh lemon juice – top up with soda water, and stir well. Garnish with orange zest, and add a touch of red with a raspberry to finish.
The Grand Tonic
Grand Marnier, with its cognac and bitter orange notes, perfectly complements the bitterness of tonic in this serve – creating a drink of refined simplicity.
To prepare this eccentric take on a traditional Gin & Tonic, pour 50ml Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge in a glass over ice cubes before filling to the top with Indian Tonic Water. Add your own choice of garnish for a truly unique twist – such as a raspberry or a grape.
