It’s also a great way to unwind in the evening and really treat yourself to something special, especially if you’re a Vito Corleone fan. So, whether you want to impress your friends with your classic cocktail knowledge, make the perfect night cap for a date, or just enjoy fine spirits expertly combined served the right way, this is the drink for you. Serve it up on the rocks for a traditional take on a classic cocktail, and be sure to add this drink to your arsenal, because it is definitely one that will truly never go out of style.
