Curaçao has its own liqueur, and while it’s been put to some unfortunate uses in the US (looking at you, blue motorcycle), it makes delicious drinks if you know how to use it. The best place to learn: Landhius Chobolobo, home of Senior & Co’s “Genuine Curaçao Liqueur,” which is the only one produced on the island. It’s made from the peel of the Laraha orange, a small, bitter citrus that evolved from Valencia oranges, brought by the Spaniards, which couldn’t survive Curaçao’s climate. Years later, someone stepped on a Laraha, discovered the fragrance, and turned it into booze. That’s our kind of inventor.
