A Drink for the Don

I know you drank it Fredo and it broke my heart

On a recent inspection I realized that there are far too few cocktails on this site that have bourbon in them. Time to start fixing that problem. Oh and if you have too many of these then the movie below may actually seem good unlike its two predecessors which are awesome.

Use a good bourbon, no cheaper than Maker’s Mark for this. I like Knob Creek.

The Godfather

  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 1 1/2 oz Disaronno amaretto

Fill a rocks glass with ice. Pour liquors in, mix quickly and enjoy.

About Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.

    That is so funny. I swear I just finished reading one of Mike’s old posts (for a recipe) where he used the line, “Just when I thought I was out they pull me back in.” Speaking of Mike – this drink would be up his alley.

    And here I sit, with a half-bottle of bourbon sitting in the bar with nothing to do. Hmm …
