Fresh orange is good for you. This has all of the flavour but few of the health benefits.
Even Mr Embury would approve of this version. Overproof Jamaican rum and copious amounts of bitters make this drink.
Coffee and orange spiked with tequila.
Brings a whole new dimension to tequila and orange
We've simplified and tried to improve this somewhat dodgy but popular cocktail. Sorry, we failed!
Probably the best-known and most popular shot.
The classic shot blended with ice.
A lewdly named shot.
This classic cocktail resembles an aromatic Martini. Hints of sherry and orange are followed by a dry finish.
Fruity, with interest courtesy of the basil and a grind of pepper.
Basically a brandy sour with a little something extra from the orange liqueur.
Refreshing, fruity long drink.
More peachy in colour than black but balanced and tasty. Not sweet.
A juvenile but pleasant tasting sweet shot.
This does indeed taste just as described on the tin.
A golden, sunny looking and sunny tasting drink.
Chocolate orange with coffee and cream.
A punch-like long drink.
A wonderfully tangy cocktail with great bourbon personality and hints of almond and orange.
Neither as memorable nor as controversial as the film but a pleasant orange drink all the same.
A creamy orange number with a surprisingly pleasant taste.
Dry yet slightly sweet with hints of orange, gin and warm spice.
Vegetable notes with hints of orange and ginger. Healthy tasting!
A Manhattan-style cocktail which takes no prisoners.
A medium dry, fragrant orange Martini
Created in 2005 by Kieran Bailey, The Light Bar, London, England.
An elongated sour with perfectly balanced strength, sweetness and sourness.
Fruity and rum laced, not overly sweet.
Creamy and sweet with orangey, herbal notes.
This dry, amber coloured, fruity cocktail carries a pisco punch.
Spicy bourbon laden with orange fruit.
Tasty tart! Refreshingly sour.
Not recommended if you want to remember the rest of the evening and please be careful - alcohol and fire is a risky combination.
Light, flavoursome, easy drinking. Altogether very gluggable.
Cream, orange and champagne work surprisingly well.
A sunny coloured drink for happy souls. And sweet orange and pomegranate soured with lemon would make anyone happy.
Fruity and sweet - an after dinner cocktail.
The rich flavours of Grand Marnier shine through what is indeed a 'grand' Cosmopolitan.
A balanced and flavoursome Margarita with the rich cognac and orange notes of Grand Marnier adding to this drinks depth of flavour.
As the name suggests, the orange of Grand Marnier heavily influences this drink. Basically a Mimosa or a Buck's Fizz (orange juice and champagne) with added oomph.
An orange twist on the classic Sazerac.
A riff on the classic Sidecar that's even simpler to make but equally tasty. Grand Marnier Cordon Rouge consists of 55% cognac so there is no need to add cognac to make a great...
'Grande Champagne' refers to the top cru of the Cognac region: this drink is suitably elite.
Balanced bitter sweet orange and apple.
Warm, fruity red wine - great on a cold night.
A B-52 served 'up'.
Tricoloured orange and mint smoothed with cream liqueur.
There's nothing Irish about this drink, but it's good all the same.
Rich and jammy flavours balanced by bourbon and lemon juice.
This drink, which is on the dry side, needs to be served ice cold.

This appropriately named, simple drink is one of my favourite Grand Marnier cocktails.
Smooth and rounded bourbon with a hint of orange toffee.
This pinky-red Margarita benefits from a hint of cranberry.
A spicy, flavour-packed hot coffee. Lightly whip or simply shake cream in container before pouring over the bowl of a spoon. It also helps if the cream is gently warmed.
The proportions of this Margarita accentuate the liqueur.
Warming, soothing and potent. Better if several servings are made at the same time and the ingredients mixed together and warmed in a saucepan.
The Latino version of an orange Daiquiri.
Ginger ale and orange complement each other, fortified by vodka.
Dry, aromatic, orange champagne.
A smooth creamy orangey dessert cocktail.
Very fruity and well-balanced rather than dry or sweet.
Basically an orange and apricot Daiquiri.
Whether you serve this hot or cold, it's a delicately spiced drink to warm the cockles.
A great drink but rarely done justice at the Polo Lounge.
Aromatic brandy and orange juice pepped and sweetened with a slug of orange liqueur.
An after dinner sipper.
Sweet, sour, flavoursome and balanced.
More interesting than a Classic Champagne Cocktail.
A twist on the classic Manhattan.
A subtly flavoured cocktail with a dry, almost tannic edge.
The sophisticated drinker’s answer to a gin and juice with dry gin and Grand Marnier liqueur made all the more fruity with orange juice, lemon juice and pomegranate syrup.
This gin and Grand Marnier based citrusy cocktail is deliberately, and indeed originally, formulated to be a tad on the sour side, but is balanced by a luxuriant sugar crusted rim....

This peachy coloured Margarita is well-balanced and flavoursome.
Sake and a hint of orange liqueur add the perfect aromatic edge to this Martini-style cocktail.
A long, fruity drink featuring well balanced sweet and sourness.

Subtle meld of summer and citrus flavours.
A suitably named refreshing long drink with an adult dry edge and kick.
Fresh tasting orange with a hint of basil.
This drink breaks the golden rule - simple is beautiful. However, it's tasty and packs a punch.
This aperitif cocktail has a trio of orange flavours with the bitter orange of Campari adding character and balance.
Passion fruit, gin, wine and ginger ale all combine well in this refreshing drink.
Peach combines wonderfully with bourbon and this drink benefits from that marriage.
A twist on the traditional Spanish and Portuguese punch.
Tangy rum and citrus with fruit and hints of almond.
More fruit than alcohol but tangy not sweet.
A heady mix of four different rums with pineapple, orange, lime and grenadine.
The richness of Grand Marnier balances lemon juice in this classic gin-led drink. A dash of grenadine provides the pink hue.
Beware – this long fruity number packs a cognac charged punch.
A Medium Dry Martini with luscious orange notes.
Light, fruity, easy and very refreshing.
I share Embury's appreciation of this fine, delicate Orange Daiquiri. However, we've tweaked his formulation as we found the original somewhat rich and over citrusy.
This blend of rum and cognac has more than a hint of Tiki fruitiness.
Claret-cum-mulled wine, but hold out for the warming ginger finish.

Essentially a Last Word with tequila instead of gin.
Fig and pomegranate add an extra dimension to this Margarita-style cocktail.
The rich style of genever combines wonderfully with orange liqueur in this balanced classic.
A lightly creamy, after dinner drink.
A classic citrus laced, big flavoured, punch.
Old Guard but this Sweet Martini made sweeter with a dash of orange liqueur well deserves a place on modern cocktail lists.
This 'Lady' is high maintenance but she delivers a complex reward.
A Wet Martini served on the rocks, sweetened and flavoured with a slug of orange liqueur.
Apple, cranberry and orange.
Be warned this dry, orangey bourbon based cocktail packs a punch.
Light, fresh and fruity. Perfect for a summer's afternoon.
Use genuine freshly pressed juice and you'll have a tasty Mimosa-style drink.
A Manhattan variation calling for Irish whiskey instead of bourbon or rye, mixed with equal parts sweet vermouth, orange liqueur and a dash of orange bitters - ideally Regan's...
The earl grey tannins balance the spice and orange in the liqueurs to make a harmonious aperitif.
A hardcore yet sophisticated drink.
A tasty Margarita with Grand Marnier, Agave Sec liqueur and orange juice.
Pouring the cranberry before the liqueur makes this drink easier to mix due to the ingredients specific gravities. The liqueur falls through the juice.
A long, refreshing orange and elderflower summery drink.
Grand Marnier adds its distinctive rich orange flavour to this twist on a Mojito.
A fruity, zesty, light summery cocktail. Tip - pouring the soda first makes this refreshingly juicy drink easier to mix due to the specific gravities of the ingredients.
The rich cognac and oranges flavours of Grand Marnier shine in this balanced and flavoursome sour.
Chocolate and cognac with the merest splash of orange liqueur still leaving this drink on the dry side.
Grand Marnier and grapefruit juice provide a flavoursome sweet and sour combination fortified with malty Scotch notes.
Tonic water adds a slight bitterness to the rich Grand Marnier in this refreshing long drink
Ginger ale adds a spiced intensity to the rich Grand Marnier in this refreshing long drink.

Slightly on the bitter side of bittersweet with the richness of Grand Marnier balancing Campari and lemon juice.
As a born and bred Londoner I’m slightly miffed that a New Yorker has applied the name of our great city to a drink using French and Italian products, but as its Phil Ward and a...
A cornucopia of flavours with which to get pickled.
A boozy sipper of a cocktail that’s medium dry with honeyed richness. Gin based with orange zesty freshness and sweet vermouth adding deep herbal complexity. A great after-dinner...
