    Golden Cadillac

    Golden Cadillac is a popular American after-dinner drink made with Galliano, heavy cream, and white crème de cacao. All ingredients must be shaken with ice until a frothy head forms, and then the mixture is strained into a chilled cocktail glass.

    The cocktail should be garnished with grated nutmeg. According to El Dorado bar Poor Red’s BBQ, the Golden Cadillac was created in 1952 when a newlywed couple requested a special mixed drink.


    Hennchata is an American cocktail composed of buttery and smooth Hennessy cognac and horchata, a traditional Latin American rice-based beverage. To make Hennchata at home, simply pour both ingredients into a glass filled with ice and combine them.

    The Kentucky Buck belongs to the category of buck cocktails, which are traditional highball drinks made with spirits, ginger beer, and citrus. This version contains bourbon, ginger syrup, strawberries muddled with lemon juice, Angostura, and soda water.

    Strawberries are muddled in a glass while bourbon, ginger syrup, lemon juice, and Angostura are shaken with ice to create the cocktail. The mixture is then strained into the glass, followed by the addition of soda water. Ginger beer is frequently substituted for the combination of ginger syrup and soda in variations.

The cocktail is a mixture of bourbon, coffee liqueur, and orange bitters. In order to prepare the cocktail, the ingredients are combined in an ice-filled mixing glass.

    The mixture is strained into a coupe glass after being chilled. A garnish of flamed orange peel is used.

Although modern variations suggest other bourbons, it is advised to adhere to Santer’s original recommendation.

    Tommy’s Margarita is traditionally served with tortillas and salsa on the side in the restaurant.

    Blue Blazer


    Whisky and boiling water are blended to create the distinctive Blue Blazer cocktail. Due to its preparation with two tankards, one containing whisky and the other containing boiling water, this drink is ideal for showcasing the bartender’s skill.

    Whiskey is ignited and poured (while still ablaze) into the other tankard; the mixture is then poured from one tankard to the next, creating a brilliant blue flame between the two. Following the conclusion of the performance, the cocktail is poured into a glass, combined with powdered sugar, and garnished with a lemon zest twist.
