Scotch diluted and delicately sweetened with added almond notes - simple but tasty. Proportions range from equal parts (45ml scotch to 45ml amaretto) to 4:1 (60ml scotch to 15ml amaretto), and even as dry as 8:1 (60ml scotch to 7.5ml amaretto), but we find 3:1 (60ml scotch to 20ml amaretto) is just enough amaretto to take the edge off the scotch and add a pleasing almondy note without overpowering the flavour of the whisky.
Based on vodka, this drink becomes a Godmother, and when made with cognac it's known as a Godchild.
