This cocktail is a variation my old friend, The Godfather! The recipe for the Godfather is simple: two parts whisky, one part Amaretto on ice (simple yet elegant). My tweaks to the recipe are very minor. I changed the Whisky to Amaretto ratio to 4:1 and I add a simple garnish. The cocktail I constructed was originally constructed for a particular whisky, Bruichladdich Black Art Whisky. While it is not necessary to use an expensive Single Malt whisky to construct the Warlock, I always find a great whisky results in a great cocktail.

The Warlock

And Remember, my aim is to help you drink better, not to help you drink more!
