THE GODFATHER SCOTCH AND AMARETTO COCKTAIL RECIPE

A Godfather inspired cocktail curated from The Spruce Eats. The Godfather is a strong and simple sipping drink made of whiskey and Amaretto, a sweet Italian liqueur. The almond-scented amaretto softens the Scotch whiskey, but still a stiff drink that a tough guy (or gal) can sip slowly at the end of a hard day. The drink debuted around the time of the Oscar-winning and wildly popular film "The Godfather" in the 1970s. You could easily imagine it as a drink Don Corleone might have at his desk while considering favors on his daughter's wedding day.

SAMARIAN SUNSET COCKTAIL RECIPE

One of our favorite Star Trek inspired drinks, the Samarian Sunset. This recipe is curated from Liquor.com. “Conundrum,” the episode of “Star Trek: The Next Generation” in which everyone gets their memories erased and Data thinks he’s a bartender, is one of the series’ best. He makes this drink for Troi after losing a game of 3-D chess. It goes from clear to green to red in the blink of an eye. We don’t yet have the technology to recreate that marvel, but we can mimic it using a trick with red-cabbage-infused rum. The drink will turn from purple to red with the addition of the fruit juices.
