Orange curacao

Curaçao is a sweet digestive liqueur made of wine or grain spirit-sugar and orange peel. Curaçao can be marketed in many forms, though the most common are orange-hued dry Curaçao and blue Curaçao, a dyed bright blue.

The only difference between Orange and Blue Curacao is the color, with Blue Curacao lending itself to more fanciful drinks. Triple Sec or orange curacao are interchangeable in the recipe. Of course, they will give the cocktail a different taste, but they serve the same purpose.
