Grand Marnier has also entered the weird and wonderful realms of Molecular Mixology and has created a Cocktail Macaroon with François Payard, of Payard Patisserie & Bistro in New York, Las Vegas and Brazil. There are 4 Macaroons which are cocktail gelées in the flavours of Grand Mojito, Grand Margarita, Grand Cosmo, and the Orange Crush.
The Cocktail Macaroon has an edible external pastry shell which acts like a garnish to complement the specific flavour notes and ingredients associated with each drink, while the interior cocktail gelée made from Grand Marnier and other spirits releases the essence of the drink in a unique, unexpected way.
Grand Marnier hosts the trend setting Mixology Summit each year and the Cocktails Macaroons come in a luxury gift box, specially designed in France and includes custom inserts to protect each individual Macaroon from breakage in shipment available from Payard Pâtisserie & Bistro at www.payard.com.
