Curacao is a general term for orange-flavored liqueur made from the dried peel of bitter oranges found on the Caribbean island of Curacao.

Curacao can be colored orange (known as Orange Curacao or only Curacao), blue (Blue Curacao), green (Green Curacao) or left clear (White Curacao). All variants have the same flavor, with small variations in bitterness. Blue and green Curacao are often used to provide color to mixed drinks.
