Curaçao is an orange-flavored liqueur made from the dried peel of bitter oranges found on the Caribbean island of Curaçao.
Originally named after the island of Curaçao, whose oranges were the basis for its first production, the name is now generic. Now made from a variety of oranges, only the peel of the orange is used for curaçao. It may be based on any white spirit, though molasses (cane) or grape are the most likely, and it comes in a range of colours, including blue. Triple sec was the term for a second distillation.
Distillates of oranges, lemons and curaçao fruit are blended to compose this extremely versatile liqueur.
