The Godmother, sometimes called a Goldeneye, is a lighter riff on the Godfather (which calls for scotch instead of vodka). It’s a simple, straightforward drink, delicious and easy to make.
The standard Godmother has no garnish, but we can’t resist the affinity between brandied cherries and Amaretto, so we always drop one or two in before serving.
Stir with ice and strain into an ice-filled glass.
