INT. DIMLY LIT SPEAKEASY –  A City in America 1975 – NIGHT

The room hums with whispered deals and shadows of power. A bartender, skilled and enigmatic, stands behind the bar, crafting the legend known as the Godfather cocktail.



“Into the glass, ice as cold as Vito’s resolve. Added to that, we pour Don Corleone’s favorite elixirs … 2 ounces of smooth, blended scotch whiskey, strong as the family’s bonds.  

And ½  ounce of Italian amaretto, a nod to his Sicilian roots.”

The bartender stirs with a calm precision, embodying the meticulous nature of the Corleone empire. The amber liquid glows, echoing the fire in the Godfather’s eyes.



“A citrus twist, to remind us even in darkness, there’s a glimmer of light.”

Bartender offers it up to the camera. Nods to patron.

The Godfather cocktail, a tribute to a legacy of power, loyalty, and honour. Like the man himself, it commands respect with every sip.
