Felt like having a culinary picnic in the sun while enjoying a delicious Grand Marnier cocktail? This summer season, Grand Marnier is hosting different pop-up picnics throughout the country. Therefore I couldn’t be more excited to attend the very first le Grand Pop-Up picnic at Hotel DROOG in Amsterdam.

The French liqueur brand which is known for its Parisian flair surely introduced their famous French heritage to the picnic with romantic red roses, French chansons played on an authentic accordion and personal love letters. For the occasion they also brought back their signature red bulbs which people know from the terraces and festivals.

At the picnic we all got the chance to make our signature Le Grand Cocktail and ofcourse I had to make mine. To be truly honest I made two. For my signature cocktail I mixed my favorite fruit (strawberries and cranberries) with some freshly squeezed lemon juice and ofcourse a good amount of Grand Marnier. I call this one the MDFS Red fresh.Le Grand pop-up picknick BY GRAND MARINIER  (15) Le Grand pop-up picknick BY GRAND MARINIER  (16) Le Grand pop-up picknick BY GRAND MARINIER  (17) Le Grand pop-up picknick BY GRAND MARINIER  (18) Le Grand pop-up picknick BY GRAND MARINIER  (19)

The second cocktail I made, I actually did not entirely make myself. (but I did truly enjoy it myself.) The second cocktail was made out of Pomegranate juice, lemon juice, some Grand Marnier and a good amount of ice. This one I called the MDFS Sour Surprise.
