Godfather Cocktail Recipe

Godfather Recipe

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.



  1. 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).
  2. Fill the mixing glass with ice.
  3. Stir for about 15 seconds with a bar spoon to dilute and cool the drink. Taste to find a good balance.
  4. Strain into an ice-filled glass.
