    When you say twist jar, does that mean to shake the jar? or really just twist the jar and the orange essence is supposed to perfume the brandy and it will infuse with twisting? I so want to make this and I don't want to ruin the brandy.

    I needed grand marnier in a recipe. I went to the store and found that it was almost 40.00 per bottle. I still haven't made that recipe but it looks to be a little less expensive now. Thanks for sharing.

    If this ends up tasting as good as Grand Mariner it has to be amazing!! Do you, or should this be, refrigerated at all?
