It's just "ok" especially for the price. Any drink recipe calling for Cointreau, I replace with Grand Marnier and find it improves the quality of the cocktail.

Very strong citrus (orange) flavor. The best of the best in terms of orange liqueurs. Makes amazing Margaritas, Sidecars and other cocktails. You can get cheap triple sec, but know that your cocktail is only going to be as good as its weakest quality ingredient. It's pricey (~$30-$35), but considering most recipes only call for an ounce or less of it, the bottle will last an incredibly long time (mine lasted almost two years). All things considered, it's definitely worth the investment.

Sippable, but a bit harsh. Nice orange flavor. But can add a bit of harshness to a margarita with a not too bold tequila. Works well with a bolder tequila in a margarita. I'd take this over a cheap triple sec, but there are triple secs for a third of the price that I prefer. I don't always keep this around the house.

Maybe the best triple sec there is. Strong but balanced.

4.1 stars one of actually very few good liqeurs in this world, uses real fruits, light years ahead of bols, dekuyper and co.

A nice orange flavor but I can't ignore the medicine aftertaste. Still; not to sweet like many cheaper Triple Secs.

Pretty much the commercially available gold standard for Orange Liqueur/Triple Sec worldwide. (Grand Marnier is in a slightly different category as a Brandy/Liqueur). While not the best in some ways, it is available almost anywhere in the world and quite good especially for the scale of production. If you are going to make a drink using a Triple Sec, spend the extra 25 cents or so it will cost in a drink - it's certainly worth it.

add a splash to a margarita to create a top shelf margarita. Also substitute this for Triple Sec in a Cosmo! This orange liqueur classes up most cocktails, and adds a delicious hint of orange to your cocktails.
