The Golden Cadillac

This is a somewhat obscure cocktail in both name and content, but it’s a tasty one nonetheless. The Golden Cadillac doesn’t have a typical base liquor; instead it uses a mixture of creme de cacao and an Italian liqueur known as Galliano, which draws its primary flavoring from aniseed and vanilla. The chocolate flavoring of the creme de cacao, matched with the anise and vanilla of the Galliano make the Golden Cadillac a sweet cocktail treat. I like to think of it as a liquid snack.

Here’s how to make it:

2 oz. creme de cacao
1 oz. Galliano
1 oz. cream

Pour the ingredients into an ice-filled shaker, and shake until cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Apparently, Poor Red’s in the small town of El Dorado, California is famous for their Golden Cadillac. They are also supposedly the largest consumer of Galliano in the world. I definitely plan on making my way to the bar there in the near future to partake of one of these sweet libations. Enjoy!
