Cocktail Class: How To Make A Grand Marnier Collins

by Maria Bell Published on 14 March 2014

The variations on a classic Collins are endless, but this one is by far one of our favourites. With the orangey smoothness of the Grand Marnier, and subtle punch from the lemon, this Collins has one serious citrus kick that will keep you coming back for more. So we spoke to Monica Berg, Bar Manager at Pollen Street Social and Grand Marnier themselves to get the ultimate recipe.

This isn't your normal Collins, oh no. This has a little extra ingredient which Monica says is sure to catapult you to new heights of cocktail creationist. A little thing called Earl Grey soda.

You can make this yourself but you will need a soda siphon. All you need to do is put strong, brewed Earl Grey tea though the siphon and there you have it. Simple.

Just one more thing before you can start, if you want to make your own sugar syrup, just mix two parts sugar to one part hot water and stir until dissolved.

Now that's all out of the way, lets get on with it. The ultimate Grand Marnier Collins recipe is right here...
