Is blue curaçao liqueur the same as triple sec?

While both are orange liqueurs, they have slight differences in terms of flavor profile and color. Triple sec is a clear, sweet orange flavor liqueur that is often used in cocktail recipes like margaritas. On the other hand, blue curaçao is a blue colored orange liqueur that originates from the island of curaçao and adds a beautiful color to blue drinks like the blue margarita.

What is blue curacao made of?

To create blue curacao, the peels of the Laraha citrus fruit, which is indigenous to the island Curacao, are steeped in alcohol in order to impart the liqueur with its citrus scent and flavor.

What does blue curacao taste like?
