Father’s Day Cocktails

Father’s Day is just around the corner! If you already know the way to your dad’s heart has something to do with good food and great drinks, we can help. Treat dad to one (or more) of these tasty Father’s Day Cocktails.

You had us at rum and ginger beer, so if that sounds like your father, try the Dark ‘N Stormy

Is dad is a fan of gin and vermouth? This Negroni recipe is a winner. 

Again for the vermouth fans, try our Italian-American representation of a Manhattan

Enjoy the warmer weather and longer summer days to come with an Italian Greyhound:
2 oz Tito’s Vodka
4 oz Ruby red grapefruit juice
¼ oz Campari
1 Rosemary sprig for garnish
1 large ice cube
Sugar half the rim of a chilled rocks glass. Add a large ice cube or 3-5 regular ice cubes.Add vodka, grapefruit juice and Campari and gently stir for 30 seconds. Slap rosemary sprig to release oils and add as a garnish to your glass and indulge.

For the classic, cool down, dad will love the Perfect G+T. It’s not just any gin and tonic, the Hendrick’s Gin and cucumber slice make it stand out above the rest:
2 oz Hendrick’s Gin
1 bottle of Fever Tree Tonic Water
3 fresh cucumber wheels, sliced thin
Large ice cube(s)
Fill highball glass with large ice cube(s). Pour the gin into glass and fill with tonic water. Stir well and garnish with 3 cucumber wheels. Enjoy!
