There’s nothing quite like putting your feet up and tossing back a cold one on a hot June afternoon—and that’s probably how dear old Dad envisions his ideal Father’s Day. However, instead of the same old boring beer in a brown bottle, treat your pops to a special concoction from our collection of manly-man, classic cocktails…
Take dad on a taste-filled trip to Mexico with this beach-inspired beer cocktail. Fill a tall picture with 2 bottles of dad’s favorite light brew, add a can of lemonade concentrate, a cup of tequila, and add fresh lime wedges. Serve in frozen, salt-rimmed glasses for effect.
If pops is a fan of old westerns, you know the ones starring Charlie Bronson and Clint Eastwood, then serve him a notorious gunslinger of a drink that he won’t soon forget. This delicious varmint contains equal parts scotch and Fernet Branca, plus a dash of brown sugar and bitters. It’s the perfect after-dinner, after-lawn mowing, or after barbecuing sipper—served ice cold!

Raise a toast dear old pop with this spicy mixture of mellow bourbon, egg white, fresh lemon juice, sticky-sweet agave syrup, smooth sage, and a fiery pinch of pink peppercorns. Mmmmm goes down smooth—especially in a reclining lawn chair!
Treat dad like Don Draper, James Bond, Indiana Jones…or whoever his favorite hero might be with this swagger-filled Manhattan cocktail. The perfectly cool blend of whiskey, bitters, and sweet vermouth in a crispy martini glass.

With deliciously cool hints of fresh lemon, piney gin, and rosemary—this dad-inspired cocktail is perfect to sip on a hot Sunday afternoon in the sun-filled back yard while grilling a feast for the whole family.
Give dad some alone time with one of his favorite cigars paired with this dusky-delicious concoction of bourbon, Frangelico, several bitters (chocolate, cherry, and angostura), and whiskey. It’s the ideal libation for some well-deserved alone time.
Sure, your dad might be a little rough around the edges, but no need to call him a Rusty Nail. However, if you fill a rocks-filled tumbler with Drambuie and scotch with a lemon twist, you might see dear old dad’s crusty exterior melt before your very eyes.
If you can’t take dad out to the ballgame, serve him a cocktail that might make up for it. This Wild Turkey-based drink is blended with amaretto, soda, fresh lemon, Frangelico, and a pinch of rock salt, but the best part is the presentation. It’s served in a tall glass that’s rimmed with crushed Cracker Jack popcorn—and dad won’t have to stand in the lineup at ballpark concessions to enjoy this homerun of a drink!
