Fruity Drink Fridays

The Grand Smash

This is a simple drink, but that's why I like it. The fact that Grand Marnier is the sole star liquor doesn't hurt either. Grand Marnier is a blend of cognac & essence of bitter orange. It can be served alone or in mixed drinks like the Grand Smash. Now I can go into the whole spiel about this drink & liquor-but like I said, it's a simple drink, it's really good & I am feeling short on the blabbity-blab today. So here it is, Disney's Grand Smash:

1 1/2 oz Grand Marnier Liquor
1 oz Orange Juice
4 Quarter Slices of Fresh Lemon
6 Fresh Mint Leaves

Muddle the lemon & mint together. Add Grand Marnier & orange juice. Shake with ice. 
You can strain into a separate iced glass if you prefer. I don't mind the mint & lemon so I leave it in.
