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.



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.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
