For a while now the Godfather has been on my cocktail todo list. When I went looking for the recipe though I found that there are actually a whole family of Catholic themed cocktails that are all extremely similar. So, as a result, I’m going to offer up a four-fer this week and cover them all. It’s going to be interesting to sample them all and be able to compare and contrast them. In addition I don’t have much experience with Amaretto other than shitty Amaretto Sours made with sour mix. So these should really help to broaden my horizons.
2 oz Scotch 1 oz Amaretto
1) Shake and strain into an ice filled rocks glass
Sub vodka for the scotch and you get.
2 oz Vodka 1 oz Amaretto
Add cream to the above and you get.
