If You Only Know How to Make One Cocktail, Make It the Bourbon Old Fashioned
When talking whiskey and cocktails, the conversation must begin and end with the Old-Fashioned. In addition to being arguably the greatest cocktail ever, it has some serious historical street cred. The first printed definition of a cocktail, that we know of anyway, was in 1806 stating that a cocktail was a stimulating beverage that is composed of spirits, sugar, water, and bitters.
How to make the God Father Cocktail
The Godfather cocktail is a sophisticated, yet simple recipe. It consists of just two ingredients: scotch whisky and amaretto. Although the official recipe calls for scotch whisky, this is sometimes substituted with a whiskey such as Bourbon. The recipe Disaronno recommend differs slightly, with a recommendation of 5 parts scotch whisky to 3 parts amaretto. The Godfather is normally served “on the rocks” in an old fashioned glass.
