Commonly Asked Questions
What are the different types of orange liqueur?
You can use cointreau, curacao, grand marnier, and triple sec for this dirty orange martini. If you want a smooth and crisp flavor to your cocktail, we suggest going for Cointreau, which is an orange-flavored triple sec liqueur. Meanwhile, Curacao is also an orange-flavored liqueur that’s less sweet and has a dry finish. Grand marnier on the other hand is a hybrid of a curacao and triple sec hybrid and has a heavier and sweeter flavor than most triple secs. Lastly, a triple sec gives a strong and sweet flavor, made from dried peels of bitter and sweet oranges. You can take your pick among these different styles of orange liqueur and have your dirty orange martini just the way you want it.
