Today is National Grand Marnier Day. Invented in 1880 by Frenchman, Alexandre Marnier-Lapostolle, it is made from a blend of true cognac and distilled essence of bitter orange. This liquor can be used to make drinks as well as delicious desserts like creme brulee and Crepes Suzette. So, in honor of this fine day make the Grand Smash after work today and enjoy your evening.
