After having a round of fuzzy navel shots, my friends and I came to One-Eyed Mike's. Once there, I marveled at the numerous bottles of Grand Marnier. Apparently the establishment has a Grand Marnier Club where membership reserves a bottle of Grand Marnier in the member's name.

I wrote: "This Grand Marnier smells beautiful. One should drink it slowly. Enjoy and sip on it. I've had quite some bit to drink, so the delicious smell also comes with a desire to vomit. I had the fortune of starting a second glass, because someone didn't want their share. Grand Marnier is strong and tasty orange liqueur. I was told warm Grand Marnier tastes really good." 12:23AM ET
I also wrote: "I couldn't drink all of the second glass. I drank it until there was about a shot left. At which point, a friend of mine who couldn't stand sipping on it, shot the rest." 12:36AM ET

While at One-Eyed Mike's we also had pineapple upside-down cake shots.

Website Information:
Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge

History:
The original liqueur created in 1880 by Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle. A delicate blend of fine cognacs and distilled essence of tropical oranges with Marnier-Lapostolle's secret touch. Slow ageing in French oak casks gives it incomparable roundness and subtlety.

Tasting Notes:
Colour
Bright topaz with gold and amber tints

Aroma
Complex nose of orange flowers combined with scents of candied zests and toffee.

Flavour
Bitter orange flavours are enhanced by the cognac with nuances of orange marmalade and hazelnuts. The finish is long and harmonious.

Exceptional Range:
"Silver Medal" at the 2004 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
