A Luscious Lagniappe to your Traditional Roast Turkey

Mix two tbsp. Gran Marnier and three tbsp. softened butter until you have an easy to spread paste. Brush or rub this all over the skin of your turkey and get some under the skin where you readily can.   Make a tbsp. or so of zest of orange and mix that into your regular dressing or stuffing.  Then roast your turkey in your preferred mode.
