Golden Dream

Golden ream creamy cocktail with Galliano, triple sec, orange juice, and sweet cream

The Golden Dream is a creamy cocktail popular in the 1970s, attributed to Raimundo Alvarez at the Old King Bar in Miami. The ’70s were admittedly dark time for cocktail culture, and we were hesitant to try the Golden Dream for fear it’d be just as acrid and cloying as similar drinks of its time.

But when a user requests a drink, we at the Cocktail Party labs have a professional obligation to uphold! We dutifully mixed one up as soon as we got the request. Imagine our surprise – the Golden Dream is actually delicious! It’s low-proof and sweet, but well-balanced; the taste is halfway between a Creamsicle and orange saltwater taffy, ideal for brunch or dessert.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake all ingredients with ice. Double-strain through a fine mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail glass (this removes the unpleasant ice chips). Garnish with an orange twist.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
