Marking the 25th anniversary Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month, Grand Marnier and Rosa Mexicano explore the Hispanic influence on food and drink with a delightful toast: the Grand Marnier Margarita Francesa.
The traditional margarita, mixing together the spirit of Mexico (tequila), orange liqueur and fresh lime juice, is the #1 selling cocktail in the US however, over the years its popularity has sparked unique twists on the classic recipe. In the 1990’s Grand Marnier introduced the Cadillac Margarita that was a huge success. Now, to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, Grand Marnier and Rosa Mexicano have teamed up to develop an internationally innovative recipe, Margarita Francesa.
The Margarita Francesa (available at all Rosa Mexicano restaurants nationally), simply reverses the amount of spirit ingredients from a traditional margarita for a more vibrant taste. The result: a profile that is smoother and more balanced with the enticement of the citrus notes and the complexity of cognac found within Grand Marnier. For those who may shy away from the “bite” of tequila, this is the ideal cocktail that will fast become consumers’ drink of choice.
