The Golden Dream Cocktail Recipe
Posted in Liquers on March 1, 2014
Just like its name suggests, this cocktail is a dream come true. It has a creamy texture and a wonderful orange aroma. The additional of Galliano makes it a little bit spicy, just enough to be intriguing, but not enough to be unpleasant. The Golden Dream cocktail is an IBA official cocktail. This means that it is one of those cocktails that the International Bartenders Associations selects for participating in the World Cocktail Competition which takes place yearly. These cocktails are usually in high demand and are frequently prepared by bartenders all around the world. This implicitly means that they are very popular, as it is also the case with the Golden Dream.
The Golden dream is actually a dessert cocktail because of its creamy nature. It is meant to be served after dinner and, because of its sweetness, it is highly appreciated by women. However, the cocktail is light and intriguingly flavored, so some men appreciated equally. It is perfect to be enjoyed after a romantic dinner because the mix of ingredients makes it very seductive. If you want to surprise your loved one with something special, you can learn how to prepare it. Do it at home for a special occasion like Valentine’s Day or an anniversary or simply enjoy it every time you feel like you need a treat.
How to Prepare a Golden Dream Cocktail
First of all, you need to make sure you have all the ingredients:
- ¾ oz. Cointreau
- ¾ oz. orange juice
- ¾ oz. cream
- ¾ Galliano.
- A maraschino cherry or an orange slice for garnish
All the ingredients (except the ones for garnishing) need to be placed in a shaker. Shake them well because you want the cocktail to be chill. It will take approximately 20 seconds to make sure the result is great. Strain the cocktail in a glass and garnish it as you like.
If you want to obtain something truly spectacular, you can chill the cocktail glass by placing it for a short while in the freezer.
It doesn’t take more than three minutes to make the Golden Dream, but the result is definitely worth your time. If there’s someone special you want to impress, this is how to get to her heart.
If you want a dessert rather than a cocktail, you can replace the cream with ice cream and blend all the ingredients together.
