Triple Sec

Cocktail Ingredient Glossary » Triple Sec

Triple sec is an orange flavored liqueur made from orange peels. The "Triple" in the name refers to the triple distillation process it goes through.

Generally Triple sec is created using neutral spirits, but some brands have brandy or Cognac bases.

Realistically, Triple sec can refer to any orange flavored liqueur. However, exotically colored liqueurs are generally called curacaos, and Triple sec is usually clear or amber colored.
