El Padrino

El Padrino
(cocktail by chip & forrest)

For this cocktail I turned to my good friend, forrest, who has a wonderful site called “a drink with forrest“.  I gave him a few thoughts I had regarding premium aged rums like Flor de Cana Centenario Gold with their complex oaky taste profiles, and 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 he sent me 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 (suggested rum Flor de Cana Centenario Gold)
1 oz       Amaretto
1/8 oz  Fresh Lemon Juice

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

What can I say, forrest tweaked my idea and together we made a premium rum  cocktail that is simply divine.

Although this rum was designed for the Flor de Cana 18 year old Rum, it will work well with any aged premium rum with a complex oaky taste profile.
