Review:

Amaretto delicately flavours and sweetens cognac.

Variant:

Godfather (Scotch whisky and amaretto); Godmother (vodka and amaretto); The Boss (bourbon and amaretto)

History:

One of "The God(father)" trilogy of cocktails, the Godchild is predated by the very similar French Connection. According to Mark Torre's 1987 The Bartenders Cherry, the difference between a Godchild and a French Connection is that a Godchild is made with brandy of unstipulated origin while a French Connection specifically calls for cognac brandy in a Snifter glass.
