"Godfather" (cocktail): composition and proportions

Memorable and intriguing cocktail tastedepends only on its two components: it's a real Italian liquor "Amaretto" and quality whiskey from Scotland. One can safely assume that a single-malt Scotch strong drink such as Highland Park with a thick and smoky aroma would organically merge into this duo. But, unfortunately, the sweetness inherent in the "female" component in the form of liquor, will overwhelm the stunning aroma and taste of whiskey.

To prepare a cocktail "Godfather", you will need a blended middle-class whiskey, for example, Scottish Collie, White Horse or Johnnie Walker. So, you will need:

  • Scotch whiskey - 35 ml;
  • "Amaretto" - 35 ml;
  • 100 g of crushed ice.

Is it worth talking about the proportions of 1:1, when there are no rules and narrow frames in the work of bartenders? It is known for sure that many bartenders, who cook such a cocktail, offer a stronger, stronger and male cocktail "Godfather". They create a drink in three to one proportions, where there are three parts of whiskey and only one - liquor. Such a ratio has its merits: the ability to use malt scotch, which is a real man's drink, the taste of which will only soften the female liqueur and acquire almond flavor. It was this option that Carleone himself preferred, the most famous mafia boss.
