Scotch Cocktails (Godfather and Rob Roy)

Here are two classic cocktails; “Godfather” and “Rob Roy” both among the most popular ordered cocktail drinks using scotch.

The Rob Roy cocktail dates back to 1894 from the Waldorf Astoria and (similar to the Manhattan which uses rye instead of scotch) and is one of the oldest scotch mixed drinks.

Then we move on to another popular drink made with scotch or bourbon called the “Godfather” that debuted in the 1970s.

A definite favorite cocktail (“Godfather”) which acquired its name from “The Godfather” movie and a wonderful combination of flavor using Scotch with the addition of Amaretto,  two perfect ingredients that taste fabulous together.

For those that aren’t fond of scotch we added the recipe for the “Godmother” (we wouldn’t want to leave her out and offend the Godfather) this cocktail eliminates Scotch and is replaced with Vodka instead.

Both our cocktails are super simple and worth a try at least once and if you’re an avid fan of Scotch, you just may love both recipes.
