Grand Marnier Shake

This lovely looking shake is such a cinch to whip up. It actually looks more complicated and fancy than it is (and it looks damn good). And we happen to think that the only thing better than watching March Madness is watching it while sipping on one of these puppies! 

Whip one up for yourself, for your friends, or for your honey, grab a seat on the couch and enjoy the sweetness that is a month of single elimination basketball accentuated by a sweet, sweet milkshake!


  1. Make Grand Marnier syrup by combining orange juice, Grand Marnier, sugar, and honey in pot. 
  2. Let simmer to combine and add orange segments once the syrup forms.
  3. Scoop ice cream into glass and add the Grand Marnier syrup and Triple Sec on top. 
  4. Allow the ice cream to melt and enjoy!

She has worked for the likes of Thomas Keller, Martha Stewart and in culinary innovation for two years at gravitytank in Chicago. She currently lives in Lake Forest, IL with her fiancé, Alex, and puppy, Paisley, and works at Prime Publishing overseeing the production of culinary content for web platforms and testing recipes that will be published in cookbooks beginning in 2017.
