Tips from 7UP

Orange liqueur comes in a variety of brands, goes by a few different names, and isn’t always orange. In general, it’s just a sweetened alcohol with orange flavoring. Try different varieties, and you’ll start to taste their differences: mild orange flavor, strong orange flavor, hints of spice, sweet, or even a “dry” version.
