Usually used to refer to the head of an Sicilian crime family/organization (Mafia). Being someone's Godfather was a great honor in Sicilian culture, and he was expected to help in the upbringing of the baptized child, almost like a third parent.

The head of a criminal organization would look over all it's members in the same way, while he might not be related to any of them.

The term Godfather didn't really catch on until the movie(s) were released.
The Godfather settled all disputes within the family.

A cigar that has been "shelled" -- had the tobacco completely removed from inside without breaking the cigar shell -- and been refilled entirely with marijuana and packed tightly to create a large blunt the size of the original cigar.
Dude, let's go make a godfather with that eighth you just bought and get seriously stoned.

A drink containing 1.5 oz Scotch Whiskey and .75 oz Amaretto (usually Disaronno). A classy drink which tempers the harshness of the scotch with the sweetness of Amaretto.

The person suggesting vodka is a moron.
The Godfather is one classy drink. Most definitely not containing vodka.
