The Golden Cadillac is a cocktail, made with Galliano, White crème de cacao, and cream. It is classified as an "after-dinner" drink, a digestif. This cocktail originated at Poor Red's BBQ in the town of El Dorado, California.
Sometime in 1952, a woman and her new fiance came into Poor Red's BBQ to celebrate their engagement. They decided their very own cocktail should be created in their honor. The couple and long-time bartender Frank Cline decided it should be created to match the couple's newly purchased golden Cadillac. After many trials and errors, Cline finally settled on the recipe now known as the Golden Cadillac.
