    We made this for our Christmas party this weekend. It was a hit with all the guests! I would highly recommend it!

    I had the perfect opportunity to make this over Christmas when the in-laws were coming. It was a terrific ice breaker. One good money saving tip we used was to substitute Triple Sec for the Grand Marnier (30 dollars versus 8). Nearly the same result with the benefit of being able to use the Triple Sec for cooking. It says it serves 9 but could serve 20 (light drinkers) if you watered it down a bit more.
