The people at Grand Marnier have created this lovely cocktail, The Grand Esprit, a long fruity drink to enjoy with friends on a lazy summer’s day. We tried it at a gathering recently and it went down very well with everyone, so much so, that we had to make a few batches up!

The Grand Esprit fuses the aromas and flavours from the cognac and tropical oranges of Grand Marnier with a splash of the vibrant freshness of elderflower. Soda water, fresh strawberries and orange poured over ice complete this delightfully refreshing Summer’s drink.
