Navan

Anyone tried Navan, the vanilla based product made by Grand Marnier? How do you use it?

you bet

from the bottle label "Navan Natural Vanilla liquor is crafted in France by the house of Grand Marnier using the same aged cognacs and traditional blending process as the world famous orange liqueur."

I picked up a bottle several months ago. Am looking for suggestions for use as a beverage, and as an ingredient in baking.

I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds as though you could use it as a soufflé flavoring, or to flambée crèpes... like its sister, Grand Marnier.

I like GM with one ice cube after dinner. Navan would probably be good that way too. It might also give you ideas for what else to do with it.

I wonder how it would be if refrigerated...no ice to water it down.
