Thirsty Thursdays: Grand Cerise Surprise

The grand cerise surprise is a romantic cocktail.  This cherry flavored drink is made with Grand Marnier Cherry, a limited edition liqueur that is made from a blend of cognacs and the essence of Griottes cherries.  This cocktail is light pink in color and it is served in a glass garnished with a rim of chocolate.
