Facts and Information about the Triple Sec Liqueur
The alcoholic drink Triple Sec is a liqueur. Liqueurs are sweet alcoholic drinks which are flavoured with a variety of different ingredients and come in a variety of different colors. The word 'liqueur' derives from the Latin word 'liquifacere' which means to melt or dissolve - the flavorings used to make liqueurs are dissolved. Triple sec is a liqueur flavored with the dried peel of the green oranges from the West Indian island of Curacao which also contains orange-flower water and orris root.

De Kuyper Triple Sec Liqueur
Triple Sec is the brand name used by De Kuyper Royal Distillers. De Kuyper Royal Distillers is a private family business dating back to 1695 when Petrus de Kuyper established the company. The De Kuyper company started to produce liqueurs in the 1920's when the Triple Sec Brand was established.

Triple sec Liqueurs ( including the Triple Sec brand, Curacao, Grand Marnier and Cointreau )
Triple sec, which means 'Triple distilled', is a strong, sweet and colorless orange flavored liqueur. The word 'Sec' usually means 'dry' but in relation to liqueurs it means 'distilled'. All triple sec drinks ( such as  the Triple Sec brand, Curacao, Grand Marnier and Cointreau) undergo a three-stage distillation process. Many of the Triple sec drinks are made from the dried peel of oranges found on Curacao, an island in the Caribbean, off the coast of Venezuela.

What's the difference between Triple Sec and Cointreau?
What's the difference between Triple Sec and Cointreau? The recipes for both of these brands of orange flavored liqueurs are secret but Triple Sec contains additional flavors of orange-flower water, orris root and other fragrances which distinguishes it from similar liqueurs. The first triple sec drink was the Cointreau liqueur which was developed by Adolphe and Edouard-Jean Cointreau in France in 1849. The Curaçao brand dates from 1886 and the Triple Sec Brand dates from the 1920's.

How to serve the Triple Sec Liqueur
Liqueurs are made in nearly every country of the world and come in a variety of different flavors and colors. This makes every liqueur drink, such as Triple Sec, an extremely versatile drink. Liqueurs can be served:

  • Straight up - Perfect as after dinner drinks and usually served at room temperature
  • On the rocks - If a cold drink is preferred liqueurs can be chilled and served over ice cubes or mixed with crushed ice
  • Served with coffee

Rainbow Liqueur Drinks - Floating Liqueurs
Ever wondered how bartenders create those unusual rainbow effects when making cocktails? They use a method called 'Floating liqueurs' which is achieved by 'floating' a measure of liqueur in a glass by pouring it slowly over an inverted spoon or down a glass rod on top of previous layers. This creates a rainbow effect in a glass when using different colored liqueurs or cordials. Liqueurs are sometimes referred to as Cordials, which causes some confusion. In America a cordial mean a sweet, syrup like alcoholic beverage. However, in the UK a cordial means a non-alcoholic, sweet, syrupy drink!
