What is the difference between Grand Marnier and Cointreau? ?

I have a cocktail recipe that calls for Champagne, Blackberry Puree and Cointreau. I have Grand Marnier, is it okay to substitute? What is the big difference between the two?

    In all honest, just price. Cointreau would be a call, and Grand Marnier would be top shelf. Don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.

    It's OK to substitute.

    I don't know the difference but I have a recipe for home made grand marnier including triple sec, brandy, & sugar.

    I'm cheap & use triple sec for all orange liquor recipes..

    They are like Coke and Pepsi - pretty much the same, apart from subtle flavor difference. And price. So yes, if it is for a mixed cocktail it, no one will see the difference.
