Need a substitute for Navan Vanilla Liquor, apparently you can no longer get it in this country.

It was made by the same company that produces grand marnier and was/is a cognac based vanilla liquor. I want to make a drink for my party next week (recipe below). So I do not have time to infuse cognac. Unless someone knows of another vanilla flavored liquor I'm thinking of substituting a vanilla vodka. What is the best brand of vanilla liquor?

Oh and since I found the recipe here I really hope the author is still around and could make a recommendation.

Guinness Cream Soda Recipe
By Lisa Lavery

Makes 6


6 ounces Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, chilled
6 ounces Navan vanilla liqueur, chilled
3 (12-ounce) cans club soda, chilled
3 (14.9-ounce) cans Guinness Draught, chilled

Place the ginger and vanilla liqueurs in a (6-cup) pitcher and stir to combine. Add the club soda and stir gently to combine.
To serve, fill a chilled pint glass halfway with the club soda mixture. Holding a spoon over the glass, slowly pour the Guinness over the back of the spoon until the glass is full. Stir gently if desired and serve immediately.
