At it costs $8 a fifth vs $33 a fifth. What was I thinking?
Many might disagree, and further, they're totally different drinks. Triple Sec and Cointreau are closer than Triple Sec and Grand Marnier.
Grand Marnier is a cognac base.
All of them are an Orange tincture.
Alls I know is the Margarita tastes just as good, and $.25 a shot for Triple Sec is better than $1.00 for Gran Marnier. Although, the Centenario is Better than the Miko. I am trying to save a little cash.
Hey, is there another name for Rum Cream. My wife and I went to Jamiaca for our anniversary (5 years). They made a drink there that used Rum Cream. I can not find it in Chicago.
You need to test them side by side. They're not even close. You can't even make a decent Crepes Suzette with Triple Sec.
By definition Grand Marnier is a Triple Sec, as is Cointreau.
They're all a bit horrible.
hey triple sec isn't that bad, i kinda like it!
This man speaks the truth.
Triple Sec. EWWWWWWW
If it ain't whiskey (of the Scotch, Irish, Canadian OR American varieties...I ain't picky ), vodka, or tequila, I ain't drinkin it!
What about Rum?
I'm not talking about drinking Triple Sec straight. That actually makes me gag to think about it. The only alcohol fit for straight drinking, in my opinion, is Bourbon.
I'm talking about using Triple Sec to make Margaritas. Many recipies call for Tequila, Gran Marnier and lime juice or Tequila, Cointreau and lime juice. I assert that buried in the taste of the Tequila and lime juice that Triple Sec is just as good as Gran Marnier.
However, I do not think you can play around with the Tequila part as much. I notice a very large difference with I used Miko or Cuervo instead of Centenario.
I always put triple sec in my margaritas. Love it. You're definitely right about quality of tequila.
Yes, there's no need for Cointreau in Margaritas. Triple Sec works fine. Spend the money on the good tequila. HUGE difference.
