And finally, we close the circle of the amaretto liqueur cocktail triad. Of course, we are talking about the Godmother cocktail, which, together with the Godfather and French Connection, creates a group of after-dinner cocktails perfect for pairings with desserts and chocolate.
We know that wine and chocolate are challenging to match, so let’s switch to a cocktail able to brilliantly solve a long-standing culinary problem!
The Godmother recipe is simple, and the most balanced and elegant of the three drinks since the neutral taste of vodka enhances the delicate bitter flavor of almonds without adding additional sweetness. The classic case of less is more, and once again, it happens with vodka.
It is a classic after dinner for dessert pairings or meditation as a cocktail. Try it with or without ice, even with aged cheeses or finger food with smoked salmon or caviar.
Ingredients and doses for making the Godmother cocktail
3.5 cl of vodka
3.5 cl of amaretto liqueur
How to prepare the Godmother cocktail
As you have seen from the ingredients, the doses are always present in equal quantities, but if you want a drier cocktail, you can only put 2.5 cl amaretto.
No shaker, of course: pour the vodka and the amaretto in an old-fashioned or a cognac glass, close your eyes, smell, and enjoy a great cocktail.
Ice is optional and not ideal for enhancing the flavors of the cocktail.
