El Padre’

Amaretto is a sweet almond flavoured liqueur which I like to mix with well aged oaky spirits. The sweet almond flavour tends to meld into the sappy oaky notes and the combination results in a wonderful sipping (slightly sweet) cocktail. This is not a new idea, the classic scotch whisky cocktail, the Godfather, is exactly this style of bar drink. Several years ago I built a very similar cocktail using a Spanish style rum instead of whisky as its base. A good friend of mine named Forrest (see his website here) helped me tweak the recipe, and we gave the bar drink the new name, El Padrino which of course, is Spanish for Godfather.

This cocktail is a shortened (albeit more complex) form of the original El Padrino (Godfather), I settled upon the shortened (and perhaps more complex) name El Padre’ (Father) for my new cocktail.

I hope you like it.
