If you have an appreciation for liqueur, this thoughtfully curated assortment of grand marnier recipes is designed to delight your taste buds.

It’s sweet, fruity, and even slightly bitter for an added treat.

Grand marnier is made from Normandy and is a Cognac-based liqueur.

It has notes of peaches and cranberry and is a clear liquor.

It’s best used in cocktails with fruit flavors or as an ingredient in other dishes with a deeper flavor.

For this list, I’ve included some traditional French recipes and also a few unusual drinks you might try while traveling abroad.

So get ready to add some new favorites to your list and make them at home!

25 Best Grand Marnier Recipes 1

1. Grand Marnier Cranberry Sauce

Grand Marnier is the perfect Christmas drink for adults and children alike.

And this cranberry and Grand Marnier dessert is no exception.

It’s light, tart, and just a little bit boozy.

It’s also simple to make.

Just combine sugar with Grand Marnier, cranberries, orange juice, and water until it’s thick yet still pourable.

It makes about 6 cups of sauce for two servings.

Enjoy it on Christmas morning or try it at home as a quick festive treat.

2. Brandy Snaps With Grand Marnier Filling

These simple, four-ingredient Brandy snaps are like crackers, but better!

You’ll need buttery graham crackers for the base; melted butter for the filling and topping; vanilla ice cream for a dollop of sweet goodness; and Grand Marnier for the fruity kick.

3. Grand Marnier Cafe

This is an indulgent version of the classic Grand Marnier dessert.

I’m sure you have a brand-name cocktail mixer in your kitchen.

If not, don’t worry; this recipe would be perfect with alcohol-free alternatives.

The key to this beautiful drink is how long the sugar syrup sits before being chilled.

(Keep in mind that sugar will crystallize over time, so it needs to be kept refrigerated.)

Recipes suggest serving it over vanilla ice cream for a more grown-up flavor and texture experience.

But I won’t tell if you go for something fun!

4. Cran-Marnier Hard Cider

While most hard cider recipes call for apple cider, this is a great recipe to use any sugary fruit you might have.

If you’re making something like a sangria or an apple wine, add some pink grapefruit and pineapple to the mix.

The cran-marnier marmalade adds a flavor profile that is super rich and warming.

It pairs perfectly with apple juice and ginger beer.

It’s almost like drinking warm caramel apples, except it’s alcohol-free!

White wines are the perfect choice for this fruity wine and Grand Marnier sangria.

5. Fruity White Wine And Grand Marnier Sangria

The fruitiness of white wines makes them the ideal match to this drink.

Between the orange, lemon, and pineapple flavor, it’s hard not to like this drink.

It has a nice balance between sweet and sour that you can get with both whites and reds.

6. Peach Moscow Mule

Peaches and vodka make a great pairing, but that can’t be all there is to it.

So let’s take this simple cocktail up a notch with champagne and ginger beer!

To start, you will make an orange-flavored vodka base.

I like to slow-ferment my ginger beer (which has a slight tang at the end), so it takes longer than usual.

Next up, add your vodka, peach purée, sparkling wine (optional), pineapple juice, and ginger ale.

Once blended, pour over ice and garnish with fresh orange slices for that sweet pop of citrus flavor.

7. Grand Mimosa

This mimosa is a classic French beverage that combines orange juice and soda.

The drink tastes so good, it’ll make you forget about the cold weather.

Of course, you can mix carbonated lemonade with sparkling water for a more authentic mimosa experience.

Either way, this drink will make your guests welcome at your party.

8. Cadillac Margarita

The Cadillac margarita is a delicious cocktail that combines three drinks in one glass: tequila, fresh lime juice, and ice.

It’s an easy drink to make at home and tastes just as good as the cocktails served at fancy restaurants.

It’s also a very effective craft cocktail for parties, so you can even make it with your guests!

9. Cranberry And Grand Marnier Champagne Cocktail

This cranberry and grand marnier cocktail is a lovely blend of sweet and tart.

It’s also a bit on the bitter side so it’s not for everyone.

But if you like your cocktails sugary, you’ll love this one.

It has just enough alcohol to let the flavors shine, but not too much to make it too strong.

(The Grand Marnier tastes best with a little extra kick.)

Plus, it takes only 15 minutes to make.

So even on a busy night, you can have something delicious ready in time for dinner.

10. Souffle Au Grand Marnier

I don’t know if it’s the rich vanilla and caramel notes, but this souffle a Grand Marnier is my favorite.

It’s simply delish!

The meringue layer is more like a crumbly buttery sponge than a traditional soufflé.

It has a light airy texture that you can use to make an even lighter crumb for any number of desserts.

You might have to keep waiting for your mouth to stop watering because you won’t be able to stop eating this one.

11. Decadent Grand Marnier Crepes

These crepes are divinely sweet and deliciously dreamy.

A layer of meringue, cream cheese, and Grand Marnier sauce is poured over a basic crepe batter.

The result is an ultra-rich dessert that’s as elegant as it is scrumptious!

Serve with whipped cream and chocolate shavings for an extra special treat.

12. Grand Marnier Margarita

It’s no secret that Grand Marnier is an amazing liqueur.

But did you know it also makes a great margarita?

Well, you would never guess!

You can use the liqueur to make your drink extra special.

Add some lime juice, salt, and chili peppers for a spicier drink.

For added flavor, try adding some Agave Nectar or honey for sweeter drinks.

13. Berry Tiramisu With Grand Marnier

This recipe combines berries and an amazing flavor with a sticky, boozy finish.

It’s the perfect combination of sweet, fruity, and silky.

The simple ingredients in this dessert include whipped cream, condensed milk, and mascarpone cheese.

You can adjust the sweetness if you like using granulated sugar instead.

You can also use your favorite pudding for this fun dessert.

14. Grand Marnier Truffles

Bring the fall vibes to your next dessert party with this classic truffle recipe.

These are the perfect gift for anyone who loves truffles and luxury ice cream.

The vanilla base is perfectly balanced with a layer of Grand Marnier for a decadent flavor sensation.

This dessert is also easy enough to make on any weeknight!

15. Orange Liqueur

It’s the stuff of dreams! Orange liqueur is a scrumptious blend of fresh orange juice and vodka.

It’s a perfect drink for adding zest to your favorite dishes.

If you love these flavors, then you need this recipe!

This cocktail is sweet, tart, and creamy.

Plus, it’s easy to make with just three ingredients.

16. Tequila Sunrise

I love tequila sunrise, but I don’t know why.

It just looks so awesome and is so unique, and it tastes fantastic.

I mean, who can argue with that?

It has the added benefit of being the most indulgent thing on this list.

Still, it’s definitely worth a try.

It takes just 15 minutes to make (including the ice cream), and you can whip up two or three in less than an hour.

But if you want something more elaborate to enjoy later in the day – after dinner or brunch – you might prefer these four other tequila-based recipes instead.

(Note: All but one are triple-shot cocktails.)(Note: All but one are made with triple-shot margaritas.)(Note: All contain triple-shot drinks.)

17. Parisian Coffee

If you’re looking to add a little extra kick to your morning coffee, try this recipe.

It’s just like the popular lemonade recipes on their own, but with an added flavor.

Pour some sugar and milk into a glass with ice, and wait for it to melt before drinking!

If you love the taste of caramel, this is the way to go.

But if you prefer something sweeter, try adding a dash of rum or vanilla extract.

18. Crème Brûlée

Crème brûlée is a dessert that’s all about perfection.

And this recipe makes your sweet tooth say, “Yay!”

Flavored with a brown sugar caramel sauce, this dish is rich and fudgy.


Coconut cream pie filling takes the place of custard in this dessert.

You can serve it as is or sprinkle some cinnamon on top for more flavor.

19. Gin And Grand Marnier

Juicy oranges, tonka beans, and a whisper of spice?

This gin and grand marnier recipe is my new favorite.

There’s something so festive about the combination.

It’s bright, zesty, and just a little bit naughty!

The sweetness from the oranges balances out the bitterness from the tonka beans for an incredible flavor.

Serve this over ice with a dollop of whipped cream or if you want to really make it special, add some grated chocolate to the top.

20. Grand Marnier Bundt Cake

It’s a time-honored tradition to serve bundt cake with Grand Marnier.

And why not?

The sweetened liqueur makes the cake incredibly soft and moist, and the glaze even more decadent.

This is a fantastic party recipe for when you have a big crowd.

And it would make a wonderful hostess gift!

21. Mai Tai

Mai tais are a popular cocktail in Hawaii.

They’re made with two kinds of alcohol, 151 rum and Gosling’s Dark Rum.

They’re also made with pineapple, lime juice, and simple syrup.

There is also a twist of orange zest for garnish.

For the base, you need 151 rum, sugar, ice cubes, and Granite Bay cola.

The sweet pineapple adds a tropical touch that’ll make your tastes jump.

To make the drink more festive, consider adding some Hawaiian flavored limes or lechon rices.

22. Bananas Foster

Bananas Foster is one of my favorite desserts.

I love the warm and creamy taste, and it’s hard to beat the moistness and tender crumb.

It doesn’t get much better than this chocolatey dessert with its decadent flavors.

This recipe is simple to make.

Just toss all the ingredients into a pan, allowing them to cook until thick and sweet.

Serve it for breakfast or dessert, and you won’t be able to resist!

23. Poinsettia Drink

This drink is made using lemonade, limeade, and pineapple juice.

It’s sweet enough for children, but it’s also a great way to use up leftover fresh fruit.

The kids will love the bright flavors here, and the citrus-some makes this a bit of a summer drink.

It comes together nicely in just 5 minutes!

24. Grand Marnier Cake With Mascarpone Whipped Cream

This is the most delicious cake you’ll ever have.

It looks like a light, fluffy white cake with a bright pink and green swirl.

As it bakes, the meringue will get crispier and crunchier while the whole thing gets more and more beautiful.

The whipped cream on top adds just that much decadence to this gorgeous dessert.

It’s best when served warm for maximum flavor.

25. Grand Marnier French Toast

When it comes to French toast, you can’t beat Grand Marnier!

This sweet, sticky dessert is the perfect way to end a meal.

It’s warm and fluffy with a hint of orange zest.

And it’s so easy to make – just mix up some ingredients and plop them over your hot pan.

The best part?

You can get creative with toppings!

For example, I like to top mine with banana slices and peanut butter.

That goes well with Grand Marnier too!
