Goldschlager, anyone?

Received a bottle as a Christmas present, and frankly the mere thought of drinking it solo makes me want to hurl. Any cocktail recipes that will make it at least somewhat palatable?

    1. I like it in warm cider, not wonderous, but not bad either.

      1. I agree with Evergreen Dan, regift!

          Maybe to someone I secretly loathe.

            but then it won't be a secret. lol

        2. I had a cocktail that was called a Tensation that used Goldschlager.The approximate recipe was 2 oz Gin(the restaurant used Tanqueray 10),1/2 to 3/4 oz Pomegranate Molasses(could try with Pomegranate juice or grenadine instead),3/4 oz fesh lemon juice and 1/4 oz or so of Goldschlager.It was a very nice drink and the Goldschlager gave it a nice cinnamon flavor.Although at 1/4 oz a drink it will take years to go through your bottle.It's also not bad with Bourbon and Apple cider,either warm or as a cocktail.It can be useful in small amounts in mixed drinks.Especially this time of year.

              pomegranate molasses can be found on amazon or middle eastern grocery stores (i happened to have some for a semifreddo i made) - pretty good stuff for cooking with...if i ever get unlucky enough to get goldschlager i would give it a try :)

                The pomegranate molasses that I bought at a middle eastern store is quite sour. I use it as an acid, rather than as a sweetener like Grenadine or even pomegranate juice. It also make a nice garnish on a rocks drink.

            2. It makes an acceptable substitute for Drano in a pinch........
