Quick Tip! There are more than one orange flavored liqueurs besides triple sec. Cointreau is a brandy-based liqueur with bitter orange flavor initially produced by the Cointreau brothers in 1849. Back then it was called "triple sec white curacao." Grand Marnier is a Caribbean orange falvored cognac liqueur produced in France. Blue curacao is a rum-based liqueur with a peel of bitter orange flavor initially produced by the Dutch. Curacao is known for the wide orange of colors.
