This cocktail first gained popularity during the 1960s and was named after the chemical used in the Vietnam War. It is believed to have been invented by a bartender at the American embassy in Saigon. The combination of orange liqueur, vodka, triple sec, and a dash of orange juice creates a balanced and tangy flavor with a slight kick from the vodka. The orange liqueur and triple sec add a touch of syrupy sweetness, while the vodka provides a smooth and clean finish. Agent Orange is a popular choice for lovers of fruity and easy-to-drink cocktails.
