Twist:

The Grand Dame cocktail is a twist on the Beautiful. The cocktail 'Beautiful' made of equal parts Grand Marnier and Hennessy is reported to have been invented by Giusepi Cipriani in 1948 at Harry's Bar. Our twist tends to accentuate a hint of citrus & vanilla spices that are not captured in the original blend producing a lighter flavor ultimately creating an exquisite experience. This delightful blend can be enjoyed shaken or on the rocks.
