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
The preparation steps are as follows:
- Fill the shaker half full of ice
Add the White Cream de Cacao, Galliano and cream to the shaker.
- Shake slowly to the count of ten
- 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.
