Liquid lunch! In May, I swung by Poor Red's at the end of my visit to Placerville before leaving the area. This saloon invented the Gold Cadillac cocktail and 3% of the WORLD’s supply of Galliano flows through this historic bar. The barkeep poured me a sample when I told him this was my first time.

Very nice to be able to taste this cocktail (Galliano, White creme de cacao, cream) before ordering. On first impression, it is sweet and I thought of it as "dessert" rather than "lunch". But compared to other sugary drinks, the herbal tones of the Galliano keep it in check, and also it's pretty dilute when blended with ice. I mean, I drove off after downing one and did not feel impaired in any way . . . which I can't say after having a full glass of wine.

How's the barbecue here?
