This past Thankgiving I need to purchase one for those tiny airplane bottles of Grand Marnier for a recipe and somehow managed to pick up a bottle of Cointreau instead. Because really they look kind of the same. I swear. Anyway, I finally got the right thing, but me being me I forgot to return the wrong item. So it had been in my cupboard unopened until a couple of weekends ago when I decide to pull it out and see what exactly it was. It turns out to a fancy triple sec so I served it up with some soda and voila we have a new cocktail.
2 ounces cointreau
4 ounces lemon-lime soda
lime, lemon or air for garnish
- Using a smallish sized glass, pour the cointreau over ice, top with the soad and serve with garnish of choice.
