El Padrino

El Padrino
(cocktail by chip & forrest)

This is a cocktail I designed with my good friend, forrest several years ago. (He also has a website, His is called, “a drink with forrest“. I gave him a few thoughts I had regarding premium aged rums with complex oaky taste profiles, and it was my wish to do a nice twist on a traditional cocktail called “The Godfather” which is a Scotch and Amaretto combination.

Forrest loved the idea, and together we created this offering:

The El Padrino
(Spanish for Godfather)

The name El Padrino fits perfectly with the mood and feeling I was trying to capture with my original suggestion as premium aged oaky rums  may truly be called the Godfathers of Rums!

2 oz       Premium Aged Rum
1 oz       Amaretto
1/8 oz  Fresh Lemon Juice

Method:
Build on ice in small rocks glass
Garnish with a thin slice of lemon.
