A question about a recipe: Chocolate Mousse with Cointreau and Chocolate Shards

I have a question about the recipe "Chocolate Mousse with Cointreau and Chocolate Shards" from merrill. What would be a good and simple sub for cointreau? I'd love to use it, but can't. Rum? Brandy? Orange zest? How much?

Brandy + orange zest combination sounds really good!! Maybe let the zest sit in the brandy to infuse for a few minutes first, and perhaps warm it ever so gently to release some of the bright citrus flavor. Have fun! (Lucky you. Sounds so tasty!!) ;o)

can you get hold of triple sec? that would work in equal measure. antoniajames's idea sounds great, too!

I wish I could have! The problem is really that I'm under 21 and had to use what was on hand. Thank-you!!

Grand marnier would work well although it's a little sweeter.
