The world's most distinguished orange-flavored liqueur, made by France's Cointreau family since the mid-nineteenth century. Cointreau is clear and colorless with an intensely exotic, mildly bitter orange flavorthe result of a combination of the peel of sour oranges (from the Caribbean island of Curaçao) and sweet orange peel from Spain. See also curaçao; triple sec.
