DharMag January 2016 Godfather cocktail: the original recipe with ingredients of a classic whiskey drink for meditation

Godfather cocktail recipe, cocktail with whiskey and amaretto, best cocktails The Godfather is a simple, minimalist cocktail: everyone can prepare a good Godfather without any experience: just put 2 parts of whiskey and two of amaretto liqueur in a glass filled with ice, sit in a comfortable armchair and sip. That’s all…

The main ingredient is amaretto, a fantastic liquor perfect to soften the strong flavor of whiskey and add an aromatic touch that remember the almonds to your cocktails.

Drunk alone is good but not great, it’s too self-referential, but if used to enhance spirits like whiskey or cognac will show all its elegance.
