The Golden Cadillac is an old-style cocktail, born in the mid-1900s, at the American Roger’s Bar, in the wake of the film “The Solid Gold Cadillac”. It is one of those opalescent drinks, prepared with cream, son certainly of his time and that nowadays seems very odd for our palate, yet his charm is still intact.
The Golden Cadillac cocktail ingredients are only three, present in equal parts: cream, Galliano liqueur, and crème de cacao. The cream acts as a binder between the two spirits, smoothing every corner, making the cocktail a soft dream to dive into it.
Its flavor is very particular, velvety, creamy, sweet, dominated by the taste of Galliano liqueur, very aromatic and full of spices, among which star anise stands out. You either love or hate it, there are no half measures in this case.
