Happy Saint Valentine`s Day – Golden Cadillac and Creme Brulee Martini

The Golden Cadillac Cocktail is one of the famous after-dinner cocktail from Alexander`s family. It was invented at Poor Red`s Saloon in El Dorado, California, near Sutter`s Mill, which was Gold Rush territory, hence the name (or only half of the name :) ). It has composition similar to Alexander – spirit, liqueur, cream. Simply and very tasty. This kind of cocktail is great stuff for St. Valentine`s Day evening.

Golden Cadillac

30 ml Galliano
30 ml creme de cacao white
30 ml cream
Shake vigorously and pour in a cocktail glass.

Salvatore ‘The Maestro’ Calabrese garnish some of creamy cocktail with ground-cherry. I think that is great idea. A ground-cherry is very interesting and good-looking garnish for cocktails.

The Golden Cadillac Cocktail has sweet, creamy taste with chocolate and vanilla with a hint of spices palate. It is admirable cocktail.

My next choice for Valentine`s evening is modern Creme Brulee Martini. This recipe was found on the so interesting site – Cocktail Times. It is so rare chance to use in cocktails another interesting italian hazelnut liqueur – Frangelico.

Creme Brulee Martini

45 ml vanilla-flavored vodka
30 ml Frangelico
15 ml Cointreau
30 ml half and half
Shake. Pour in a cocktail glass and garnish with a vanilla stick.

I use Absolut Vanilla in my cocktail. The result are excellent. The Creme Brulee Martini is sweet creamy cocktail with comlex palate. It is like an ice-cream from my childhood.

Moon Dust

I don`t know why I decided to mix with strange cocktail… New bottle of Galliano liqueur or my own cold-processing grenadine… God know`s!

The Moon Dust Cocktail has very strange composition – rum, vanilla, almond and pomegranate :) It is crazy drink!

The Moon Dust Cocktail (Коктейль Лунная Пыль)

Moon Dust

30 ml white rum
20 ml Galliano
15 ml fresh lemon juice
7 ml orgeat
7 ml grenadine

Very sweet exotic cocktail. Amazing, but I don`t think that I will prepare this cocktail once again…

I not sure tiki or not is this cocktail in fact, but I feel that it is tiki :)

A Lulu

30 ml light Puerto Rican rum
15 ml creme de noyeau (I use DiSaronno Originale)
30 ml fresh orange juice
15 ml passion fruit (mixer)
15 ml Galliano
Shake. Strain into ice-filled rocks glass.

As “passion fruit (mixer)” (wtf?) I use mix of passionfruit syrup and fresh lemon juice 1:1. I use Italian almond liqueur Disaronno Originale (Amaretto) instead creme de noyeau (french almond liqueur).

Admirable! Sweet and exotic taste and good balanced.
