DharMag January 2016 How to make the perfect Godfather cocktail: the original recipe

Godfather cocktail drink recipe ingredients, cocktail with whiskey and amaretto The Godfather is a simple, minimalist cocktail: everyone can prepare a good Godfather without any experience: just put 2 parts of whisky 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 remembers 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.

There is no reliable information about the Godfather cocktail, except that it is part of the triad of the gangster cocktails made with Amaretto: French Connection, which requires Cognac instead of whiskey and Godmother, made with vodka.

Its enveloping and spicy flavor is ideal as an after-dinner drink, a classic meditation cocktail, to be sipped slowly. Pay attention to its high alcohol content, not to be taken lightly.
