    Have never tasted this but need some to make cocktails - is it a just an orange liquior?

    If it is then I tempted to get a cheaper version, as I only need a couple of tablespoons.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    It is an orange flavoured liqueur, no other flavour that I know of

    It is a bit subtler than some, but in cocktails I'd happily use curacao (such as Bols), triple sec or other colourless orange liqueur in its place (try Lidl or Aldi for an own brand?)

    DON'T use Grand Marnier, that's brandy based and may taste rather different in a cocktail (I have occasionally used one for the other in desserts - different but always good)

    If you only need a bit try looking for a miniature - offies more likely to have them than supermarkets.

    Thanks Sue. I didn't know they were orange either. I clearly don't drink enough!

    And as luck would have it .......... Lidl opened here this morning!

    Thanks again.
