Adventrues in Mixology: The Godfather

There are some great drinks that unfortunately don’t have an origin story. The Godfather is one of these drinks. It was quite popular in the 1970s and was probably created as a tribute to the film and book of the same name. It’s a nice, basic mix of scotch and amaretto on the rocks.

The Godfather

  • 1 and 1/2 ounces scotch or bourbon
  • 3/4th ounces amaretto
  • Pour the ingredients into an old fashioned glass over ice and serve.

Alternately, one can substitute Vodka for the Scotch to make a Godmother.
