A bottle of Grand Marnier is a staple of many home bars, but this orange-infused brandy can pull double duty in the kitchen. The liqueur’s ability to convey round, aromatic citrus flavor is endlessly useful in desserts and can give fruity notes to a savory sauce.

This recipe for Suzette sauce uses orange-infused brandy liqueur along with fresh-squeezed orange juice to add zest and character. A few tablespoons of caramelized sugar bring complexity to the sweetness, and butter whisked in at the end provides a richness that will taste magnificent on crepes, waffles or French toast.
