Godson | Cocktail Party

Godson

Godson cocktail with scotch, amaretto, and sweet cream

This little “family” of drinks is fun, if a bit weird: the men (Godfather and Godson) have scotch while the women (Godmother and Goddaughter) have vodka, and the kids (Godson and Goddaughter) get cream in theirs.

The Godson is intended as an amaretto-forward dessert drink, so leave your big peaty Laphroaig on the shelf. A tame, blended scotch is best here.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into an ice-filled glass.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
