About Flavored Brandy Liqueur

About Flavored Brandy Liqueur
Flavored Brandy Liqueurs are liqueurs using either Cognac or Brandy as a base and flavored mostly commonly with orange–like in the most famous example, Grand Marnier–or other flavorings such as vanilla or coffee and then sweetened with sugar. These should not be confused with Fruit-Flavored Brandies, which are grape Brandies that have been flavored with the extract of another fruit and are much drier.
