Yes, it's very definately orange liqueur. There is also Cointreau and Triple Sec, but Grand Marnier is sweeter than the others.

I spend a lot of money buying liqueurs to use in my recipes. It`ll be great, if you can!
Thank you in advance! thumbs_up.gif

Just a note, if you don't think you'll use it much, I wouldn't buy GM. It's much more money than some of the others mentioned. Ofcourse, if you use something different the end result will taste slightly different but I'm sure if you use something similar it will still be good.
