Prior to winning the US Cocktail Competition in 1962 with his cocktail Golden Amber (a concoction composed of Demerara rum, orgeat syrup, orange juice and pineapple juice), Leroy Charon in 1959 created what was to become an international classic as he won the US Cocktail Competition that year with a cocktail he had named Golden Dream. Previously Charon decided he had found the right flavor to match his favorite palate: a pleasantly sweet, frothy cocktail that tasted very much like a creamsicle ice cream for grown-ups, with an intriguing orange-herbal tang to it.
Chandler beat out 62 other fellow bartenders and got awarded $ 1,000 as well as a trip to London sponsored by the United Kingdom Bartenders Guild. In 1962 Charon was one of the competitors during the International Cocktail Competition, organized by the International Bartenders Association in Hamburg, for which he had chosen to compete with Golden Dream.
