How to use up leftover Grand Marnier
- Poached pears
Pour 500ml red wine, 250ml Grand Marnier and 600ml water into a large saucepan. Add the pared zest of a lemon and an orange, 125g caster sugar and 1 cinnamon stick. Heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to infuse for 15 minutes. Add 6 firm peeled whole pears, bring back to a simmer, then cook gently for 35 minutes. Serve with Crème fraîche.
- Spiked orange custard
Gently heat 300ml whole milk in a saucepan until steaming. Meanwhile, whisk 6 medium free-range egg yolks with 75g caster sugar in a heatproof bowl until pale. Pour a little of the hot milk into the egg mixture and mix together, then pour everything back into the saucepan. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon for 5-7 minutes until the custard starts to thicken and coat the back of the spoon. Add the finely grated zest of 1 orange and 1 tbsp Grand Marnier and stir for 1 more minute. Serve immediately.
