The Event
Grand Marnier Master Distiller Patrick Reguenaud made a stop at Casa Tua in Miami as part of a five-city U.S. tour to introduce a select (and very lucky) set of tastemakers to Grand Marnier’s newest addition, Cuvée 1880, with a dinner marked by superior cuisine, engaging conversations and five-star cocktails.

The Crowd
All too happy to imbibe Reguenaud’s mixology magic and play hosts for the evening were Marnier Lapostolle President Alexandra Marnier Lapostolle de Bournet, company CFO/Executive Vice President Cyril de Bournet, Grand Marnier Foundation President R. Scott Green and Casa Tua owner Mickey Grendene.

The Highlights
The gustatory extravagance started right off the bat as guests were handed cocktails like the Millionaire Margarita, made with Grand Marnier Cuvée du Centenaire and Don Julio 1942, the moment they walked in. After introductions and party chatter, attendees sat down to a multicourse dinner paired with wines and different Grand Marnier cognacs between dishes. As supper came to an end, waiters in white gloves came out to pour doses of Quintessence (Grand Marnier’s most exclusive libation) in Baccarat glasses. Closing out the evening, most in the crowd left with Grand Marnier bottles engraved with a message of their choice. –Photography by Dora Franco
