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.
