How To Make A Golden Cadillac Cocktail

How to make a Golden Cadillac cocktail is a simple recipe to follow. In the genre of drink varieties, this one is a cream drink. The Golden Cadillac is promoted as an after dinner drink. The liqueurs are generally sweet, creamy and have a very distinct flavor. The alcohol content is usually between 40 to 60 proof. This cream drink must be shaken or blended to make a well mixed cocktail. The drinks are normally served in a cocktail glass.

Here are the ingredients and items needed to make a Golden Cadillac cocktail:

  • ½ oz White Cream de Cacao
  • ½ oz Galliano (Licorice flavor liqueur)
  • 2 oz. Cream
  • Ice cubes
  • Shaker
  • Strainer

The preparation steps are as follows:

  1. Fill the shaker half full of ice
  2. Add the White Cream de Cacao, Galliano and cream to the shaker.
  3. Shake slowly to the count of ten
  4. Strain the liquids into a cocktail glass


This cream drink is sometimes made with ice-cream for a more milk-shake consistency for those who have that preference. If that’s the case, substitute 1 scoop of vanilla ice-cream for cream. Instead of shaking the drink, blend the White Cream de Cacao, Galliano and the ice-cream in a blender until milkshake texture is formed. This will have a little more liquid in it, so serve in a bigger glass, like a fluted champagne glass. Some people like half and half instead of Cream also.


Presentation is everything. Some ideas to take into consideration might be to give the glass a frosted edge by dipping the rim into lemon juice and then dipping it into sugar. Then, maybe add a cocktail stick with a cherry or a small piece of fruit and place on the rim of the glass. A drink umbrella also adds a nice touch. Present this elegant drink with a coaster and a cocktail napkin and everyone will want you at the next party.
