The Godfather is one of numerous cocktails named for notable films. Given the popularity of the Godfather films, few would question the source of this cocktail’s name. The practice of naming cocktails after popular films, plays, or other entertainments has long been an established tradition. The Matrix and the Reservoir Dog are now less known than the Adonis, but the Godfather is still doing favors for those who order it. We may also wonder why there were no drinks named after High Noon or Lost Weekend. For cocktails named after celebrities, see the Mary Pickford.
