Staying true to its 1970s roots, the Godfather cocktail is a bold cocktail with two simple ingredients.  And, it gets its name from, you guessed it, the famous gangster movie and as legend has it, an actual old-time famous gangster. 


There's speculation as to which gangster this drink is actually named after - It could be the Don, while other cite it as Marlon Brando's drink of choice. Regardless this drink exudes power and authority. 


  • 2 ounces Scotch or bourbon
  • 1/2 ounce amaretto


Fill two thirds of the glass with ice and add both ingredients. Then simply stir until wet chilled - aka about 20 seconds - and strain into serving glass. 


Serve over ice in a whiskey glass of your choice.
