Golden Cadillac Cocktail

While a real golden Cadillac might be a bit impractical – after all, gold is pretty heavy, so it would probably weigh down the tires too much to actually let you get very far – it is always fun to dream of the possibilities. Well, no matter how unlikely a real golden Caddy might be to drive, there is always the possibility of having a Golden Cadillac cocktail to drink! That’s right. There is a cocktail out there that fulfills the dream of the existence of a golden Cadillac. If you can dream it, you can shake it in a cocktail shaker and serve it.

A Golden Cadillac is an unusual drink. For one, its name has nothing to do with what color it is – it actually turns out to be white and looks frosted! For another, the drink combines three ingredients that at first glance do not seem like they would go well together: triple sec, Galliano, and light cream. However, the drink actually turns out to be absolutely delicious. You can’t judge a cocktail by its name! And you also can’t drive a car made entirely out of gold. But that is a lesson we have already learned today. On to the recipe!



1 measure triple sec
1 measure Galliano
1 measure light cream


1. Chill a cocktail glass by filling it with ice cubes and cold water, then emptying it once it appears frosted and is very cold to the touch. 

2. “Frost” the glass by dipping the rim in a dish of water, then in a dish of sugar. Set the glass aside. 

3. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes, then pour in the triple sec, Galliano, and light cream. Shake the mixture vigorously until well frosted. 

4. Carefully strain the mixture from the cocktail shaker into the chilled, frosted cocktail glass. Serve and enjoy!
