1. Gold Royale
The Gold Royale cocktail looks good enough to serve royalty! This cocktail is simple to prepare and needs just three ingredients. Gather Goldschlager, whipped cream or vanilla vodka, and a bottle of champagne.
Add the Goldschlager and vodka to your glass first, then top with champagne. Rim each glass with edible gold glitter before you start preparing the cocktails for an extra wow factor!
2. Dirty Dr. Pepper Cocktail
This dirty Dr. Pepper cocktail can be made in a cocktail glass or a pitcher if you’re serving a crowd. Interestingly, there’s no Dr. Pepper in the recipe! You’ll need amaretto, Goldschlager, and coke. Beer is an optional addition, but it does make an awesome, more flavorful cocktail.
Add the amaretto and Goldschlager to a cocktail glass with ice cubes. Top with coke and enjoy! If you decide to use beer, top halfway with coke and the rest with beer.
3. Black and Gold Martini
Nothing says classy, quite like a black and gold martini. To prepare your own, add ice cubes to a cocktail shaker. Pour in black vodka and goldschlagger. Shake to combine, then strain into a martini glass.
This martini is best enjoyed as-is, with no garnish necessary for a showstopping presentation! The flavors will be simple, slightly spicy, and perfect for sipping after a long day.
4. Carrot Cake Shot
Carrot cake shots might not technically be a cocktail, but they taste so good you’ll be begging for a bigger glass next time! Preparing this shot is as simple as adding your ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice, shake, then strain into a shot glass.
You’ll need Goldschlager, Baileys Irish cream, coffee liqueur, and butterscotch schnapps. The final result is a sweet, creamy shot that will curb a carrot cake craving.
5. Cinnamon Candy Apple Sangria
Sangria is the perfect cocktail to serve with brunch or during a cozy movie night. No matter when you prepare this cinnamon candy apple sangria, you’ll be glad you did! It has the classic flavors of a candy apple with just the right amount of cinnamon spice.
Prepare in a pitcher using white wine, Goldschlager, butterscotch schnapps, and apple cider. Add 2-3 peeled, cored, and chopped granny smith apples to turn this into an irresistible fruity sangria!
6. Lemon Twist Tequila Eggnogg
Have you ever thought about adding dessert topping to your eggnog? If not, you’re doing it all wrong! This lemon twist tequila eggnog recipe begins by smearing raspberry dessert spread in a martini glass and only gets better from there.
Tequila, eggnog, Goldschlager, simple syrup, and lemon juice are mixed in a cocktail shaker with ice until chilled. Then, strain into the prepared martini glass and garnish with a lemon wedge.
7. Arkansas Avalanche
The Arkansas Avalanch is a Goldschlager cocktail with a gorgeous red tone and the perfect combination of sweet and spicy flavors. Add Goldschlager, grenadine, and lemonade to a cocktail glass with ice. Stir, and you’re ready to drink – yes, it’s that easy!
8. Oatmeal Cookie Cocktail
Have you ever wished you could turn an oatmeal cookie into a cocktail? If not, you should be! This oatmeal cookie cocktail tastes as good as an actual oatmeal cookie but is a whole lot boozier.
Add milk, heavy cream, Baileys Irish cream, butterscotch schnapps, Goldschlager, and vanilla extract to a cocktail glass with ice. Stir, add a dash of butterscotch topping, and enjoy your liquified oatmeal cookie.
9. Cinnamon Stick Drink
A cinnamon stick drink is a two-ingredient cocktail that’s impossible to mess up. It tastes like cinnamon apple cider and is quick to prepare! Add apple juice and Goldschlager cinnamon schnapps to a glass with ice. That’s it! If you want to take your cocktail up a notch, add a real cinnamon stick to stir with. Also, apple cider makes a nice alternative to apple juice if you live near someplace that presses it fresh.
10. Gingerbread Man Shot
This cocktail captures the flavor of a gingerbread cookie with an easy-to-follow recipe. All the ingredients are combined in a cocktail shaker and then served in a shot glass. You’ll need goldschlager cinnamon schnapps, butterscotch schnapps or kahlua, and baileys irish cream.
Serve with a gingerbread cookie for a tasty treat after your shot!
11. NYE Sparkling Champagne
These sparkling champagne cocktails are the perfect drink to serve at your next NYE party or any glamorous celebration. Start by dipping the rim of champagne flutes in water, then in edible gold dust.
Next, add Goldschlager and top the glass with champagne. Add angostura bitters to balance the sweetness of the champagne for a more dimensional cocktail.
12. Golden Dagger
The golden dagger is a cocktail that breaks the mold of other Goldschlager drink recipes. Begin by getting a highball glass to use as a shaking glass and another for serving. Add ice to both. In your shaking glass, put Jagermeister, Goldschlager, and lime juice. Shake until combined.
Strain into the serving highball glass, then top with mountain dew. Garnish with a lime wedge and serve.
