The Beautiful One is a cranberry juice based cocktail that’ll cure you of a Cranberry Vodka obsession. This delicious drink balances the cranberry juice with equal parts Hennessy’s cognac and Grand Marnier orange liqueur. Hennessy’s has a great flavor on its own and mixes very well with sweet and tart ingredients. Grand Marnier is both of those things, and so is the cranberry juice. This is just a fantastic-tasting drink.
