The Godfather is the ultimate whisky cocktail that belongs on two polar ends of the spectrum of difficulty and delectable. For a seasoned cocktail lover with no patience to spare, this whisky cocktail is the go-to choice.

Scotch whisky is usually employed as the base spirit for The Godfather, but it isn’t absolutely necessary. All you need is an incredibly smooth whisky that blends well with the Amaretto, an Italian liqueur and you’re all set.
To transform The Godfather into The Indian Godfather, you can easily substitute the Scotch with Blenders Pride Reserve Collection. Blended to perfection in India, and matured in Oak barrels using the Solera Process, it is the ultimate substitute that doesn’t require you to break the bank for good taste.
Step 1: Add ice cubes, Blenders Pride Reserve Collection whisky and Amaretto to a cocktail shaker. You can tinker with the ratio of whisky and Amaretto depending on your preferences but it would be advisable to not exceed a 1:1 balance.
Step 2: Stir the mixture with a bar spoon until it is ice cold.
Step 3: Strain the mixture into a Lowball glass filled with one large ice cube. Your Indian Godfather is ready to be served.
