I was excited to see a new signature cocktail on the menu when I visited, and even more delighted that it wasn't a take on an old fashioned or a fruity vodka drink. Perry's does very well with their diverse cocktail menu and even lets you try their drinks three mini-martinis at a time, but it never hurts to have a new cocktail to choose from.
For their slant on a traditional Godfather (scotch whiskey and amaretto), they use Monkey Shoulder scotch whiskey (bright citrus and warm vanilla notes), amaretto, and the kicker, black walnut bitters for a slight cocoa flavor.
This cocktail is available for dine-in or takeout. And needless to say, it'll have you saying, "Leave the gun, take the cocktail."
