The Golden Cadillac was invented in El Dorado, CA at Poor Red’s BBQ Shack during the heyday of ice-cream cocktails – the 1960’s. They claim to go through more Galliano than anywhere else on the planet, and we believe them! Galliano – an Italian liqueur from the 1890’s, named after an Italian war hero – is sweet and herbal with notes anise and citrus. After distillation it is combined with pressed vanilla beans, giving it the character which mates perfectly with cream and ice-cream. This shaken version of that classic cocktail is perfect if you don’t feel like messing with your blender. Be certain the check out the blended version of this cocktail along with the other ice-cream drinks we love. Cheers!
