Friday Happy Hour: Golden Cadillac

This Friday, we're taking another guilty nip from Grandma's liquor cabinet, as this creamy confection of a drink brings both sheer enjoyment and shame. Our drink is #14 in the veritable line-up of guilty drinks above. Taken from Galliano's "Welcome to Galliano's World of New Tastes" (circa late 1960s), here's the recipe:

The Golden Cadillac is the kind of drink you'd find on a bar menu in a supper club or old restaurant that hasn't been updated in 30 or 40 years. And, yes, they'll probably make this drink in a blender. Here's the "You Are What You Drink" take on this venerable cocktail:

Suppository fashion?! Well, anyway, cheers!
