La Belle Orange

The BF came home with a lovely bottle of La Belle Orange cognac & orange liqueur today. I've never had it before, but I'm assuming it's a bit like Grand Marnier? He recalls that it's a little sweeter than GM.
Aside from sipping it, which I'll try tonight, any suggestions for drinks with it? Maybe an orangey type martini with orange vodka and a splash of OJ? Anything more creative?
I've just had a little taste. It's must mellower and sweeter than Grand Marnier. For me, Grand Marnier is too strong to drink straight, this La Belle is defintiely more drinkable for me. I did have a little on top of lemon sorbet last night and it was luscious!
I think I might even try it with Mandarin Absolut, La Belle and club soda.
Add a little twist to your holliday toasts. Try a splash of La Belle Orange in a Champaign glass, top it off with your favorite Spumante or dry Champaign.
