As with many cocktails, the origin of the Godfather's name is uncertain. The amaretto brand Disaronno claims the drink was the favorite cocktail of American actor Marlon Brando, known for playing the titular character in the popular American film adaptation of Mario Puzo's The Godfather, which prominently features the Italian mob. This may be an allusion to the cocktail's prominent use of amaretto, an Italian liqueur.
A common variation of this drink reduces the amaretto to one part. Disaronno recommends a recipe of three quarters part amaretto to one and a quarter part whiskey. Bourbon is often used in place of scotch.
The Godchild replaces scotch with cream.
