How to generate continuous variable corresponding to Odds Ratio X

I am looking to generate a continuous normally distributed random
variable with a given MEAN and SD for two groups. Is there a
systematic way to generate two such groups with N number of cases so
that their odds ratio in a logistic regression would be predictable?
In my case I am looking for OR=1.5 but any other number would do.

Two normally distributed groups is the idealized case. If there are
other distributions that I can use to solve this problem I would love
to hear about them as well.
