Eventually, the dried peels of small laraha oranges were used to 味道 the liquor. 荷兰公司波士(bol)声称是第一家生产库拉索岛的公司.这是经常需要的 经典鸡尾酒配方. 大约在20世纪初, Curaçao生产商开始销售各种颜色的产品:橙色, 白色(清晰), 蓝色的, 和格林(很少). The orange and white 利口酒 are the most versatile; 蓝色的 库拉索岛 is one of the most common ways to create 蓝色的鸡尾酒. 大多数库拉索酒是60度的.

There's also a claim that the name refers to the third attempt at 橘味白酒's recipe (the one still in use). 今天, "triple sec" is more of a generic term for an orange liqueur and there are many brands that vary greatly in quality, 味道, 和甜蜜. 橘味白酒 and Combier are the most trusted premium brands available; many are considerably lower in quality, 通常是不好吃的. This liqueur is often clear, though some with a brandy base may have a golden color. Most triple sec is 60 proof; 橘味白酒 and Combier Original are 80 proof.
  • Brandy-Based: Many of the original 库拉索岛s had either a brandy or 朗姆酒 base and a few orange 利口酒 continue to use brandy or Cognac.

如何喝橙汁利口酒

在大多数情况下,橙味利口酒是不能单独享用的. Brandy-based 利口酒 like 金万利酒 are the exception and nice when served on the rocks or topped with light soda. 除此之外,它们通常是用来喝鸡尾酒和射击酒的. 各种鸡尾酒配方中都含有橙味利口酒, 包括恶化, 马丁尼酒, 和冷场, 还有混合饮料和热饮. They're common in shot recipes and often prized for their color and sweet taste in layered shooters.

在选择橙味利口酒时,考虑以下几点:

  1. 在酒吧里放一种淡橙色和一种深橙色的利口酒. The most common premium choices are 橘味白酒 (light) and 金万利酒 (dark), 虽然有其他品牌在质量上可以与之媲美.
  2. When substituting, try to retain that same light or dark base that the recipe calls for.
  3. A cheap orange liqueur (especially triple secs and 库拉索岛s) can ruin an otherwise perfect cocktail.
  4. If you have a favorite orange liqueur and a new recipe that calls for a different liqueur, 试试你最喜欢的吧. 它可能同样好,如果不是更让你高兴的话.
  5. 离开的时候没有别的向导,只有“橘子利口酒”," follow the theory of pairing light 利口酒 with light cocktails and dark with dark. 例如, 在杜松子酒, 朗姆酒, 龙舌兰酒和鸡尾酒, you might begin with a 库拉索岛 while in cocktails with brandy or whiskey, 金万利酒也许是个不错的起点.
