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.

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