Jonathan Pogash, The Cocktail Guru, created this delightful cocktail for the debut of the limited edition Grand Marnier Natural Cherry. The Grand Cerise (cherry) Surprise is a drink that caught my attention because the liqueur dominates the drink, the rum is used as an accent, and the milk and syrup transform it sweet treat while enhancing the spirits.

Choose a dark rum with great character that will show off the liqueur's orange and cherry flavors. Some suggestions include Pusser's British Navy Dark, Mount Gay Extra Old, and Angostura 5 Year Old Dark.
