Dry Curacao vs Cointreau vs Grand Marnier So, I made my first Orgeat syrup today and I am impatiently waiting for it to cool so I can mix up my first Mai Tai. I have on hand Cointreau, a verrrry old Grand Marnier and also some verrrry old (1970s at least) airplane bottles of Curacao (unopened).
Grand Marnier is a curacao-style liqueur, meaning that it has a brandy base. Cointreau is a triple sec (in fact, it was the original triple sec), which means that it has a neutral spirit base. As for the Pegu, if you don’t have curacao, just use the Cointreau.
Cointreau is actually an extra-sec Curacao liqueur and Grand Marnier is an orange-flavored brandy liqueur. Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao is also an orange-flavored brandy liqueur. Reply. Julia on July 29, 2018 at 8:20 pm This is a great resource, thanks for sharing!
