Godfather is a simple cocktail with Scotch whiskey and Amaretto. The sweet amaretto liqueur rounds off the whiskey with its fruity nuttiness. If you replace the whiskey with vodka, you'll have a Godmother cocktail instead. With cognac it is called a French Connection.
- Pour both ingredients into a mixing glass (if you only make one drink, you can stir directly in the same glass that you serve it in).
- Fill the mixing glass with ice.
- Stir for about 15 seconds with a bar spoon to dilute and cool the drink. Taste to find a good balance.
- Strain into an ice-filled glass.
