This blend is smoothed out with the addition of milk, resulting in a comforting beverage. Typically served in a lowball glass, it offers a harmonious mix of flavors that makes it a unique variant of the classic Godfather cocktail, with an added twist of coffee to suit those who enjoy a touch of caffeine with their spirits.
