I've eaten so much over the holidays. My house is still littered with boxes of truffles, cookies, squares and even more treats. You really can have too much of a good thing. How to combat sweet overload? Post a cocktail recipe, that's how. You can never have too many of those, right??
Frozen Golden Cadillac
1 oz Galliano
1 oz White Creme de Cacao
1 oz cream
1/2 cup of ice
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker.
Shake until well mixed
Strain into a martini glass
That is the classic recipe. I've made them like this but never drank them like this.
The easiest way to make them is to combine everything and serve it in an old fashioned glass. I sub the 1 oz cream for 3 or 4 oz of milk. Too much chocolate? or vanilla? just play with the amounts of liqueur a little until you have what you like.
You can make the classic recipe but instead of shaking it, blend it in a blender for a frozen cocktail. Sub the cream and ice for a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Perfection.
Never had Galliano? It's an herbal liqueur. Top note of vanilla with a hint of anise and ginger for a finish. Paired with the Creme de Cacao you have a drink tasting of chocolate and vanilla, with a hint of licorice and ginger as an after taste. Just think how elegant 2012 will be serving this swishy after dinner drink. That's me, all class.
There you go Rorybore, enjoy.
