Drink of The Weekend – May 24th -


Welcome to the next edition of  the FANFOOD Drink of the Weekend. Every weekend we will provide you with recipes for great drinks that are perfect for your backyard BBQ, or at your next tailgate party.


This week it’s The Godfather


Now that you know the difference between, Whiskey, Bourbon, Scotch & Rye, here is a standard Scotch drink for you to try. The Godfather is a cocktail made of scotch whisky and amaretto. Typically, the liquids are poured into an old fashioned glass.

One could make the connection between The Godfather movies and this drink which uses the sweet Italian liqueur, amaretto, and the robust, hard flavors of a smooth Scotch. Appropriately, the Godmother is a little softer with vodka.

I like this one because it is a slightly more complex Scotch on the rocks but it doesn’t ruin or overpower the whisky. This is a pre-dinner drink is also popular as a night cap. The almond flavor of Amaretto softens the bite of the scotch, and is a wonderful summer night drink.





1 ½ oz. Scotch
½ oz. Amaretto


mix over ice, garnish with an orange twist
