Curašao is an orange-flavored liqueur made from the dried peel of bitter oranges found on the Caribbean island of Curašao.
Originally named after the island of Curašao, whose oranges were the basis for its first production, the name is now generic.
The 19th century Frenchman Jean-Baptiste Combier invented triple sec when he
steeped the sun-dried skins of Haitian oranges in neutral spirits then distilled
it in copper pots. Triple sec, meaning "triple distilled" in English, typically
contains about 23 percent alcohol and has a mildly sweet orange flavor. Now made from a variety of oranges, only the peel of the orange is used for curašao. It may be based on any white spirit, though molasses (cane) or grape are the most likely, and it comes in a range of colors, including blue. Triple sec was the term for a second distillation.
Distillation of oranges, lemons and curašao fruit are blended to compose this extremely versatile liqueur.

Cointreau is lighter in taste than orange-infused cognacs, so it is nice for drinks that need a lighter touchŚlike a lemon drop or cosmo.
