It is so close we can almost feel it. It is Father’s Day and so worth celebrating. We raise a toast to all the wonderful dads out there that care, educate, laugh and play with their children (young or old). They deserve a special care this day although; their role should be celebrated, always.
Because of this, we have made a selection of eight different cocktails that you should make in this special day. And guess what? It sure has whiskey included.
Here it is, a selection of 8 amazing cocktails for Father’s Day
50 ml Scotch Whisky
25 ml Whiskey Liqueur (Drambuie)
Add whiskey and Drambuie to rocks glass. Half fill with ice and give a quick stir. Add a couple more ice cubes and enjoy!
50ml Bourbon or Rye Whisky
10ml Dry Vermouth
10ml Sweet Red Vermouth
2-3 dashed Angostura Bitters
Lemon peel for garnish
Chill a coupe glass. Add all the ingredients to a shaker or mixing glass. Half-fill it with cubed ice and stir with a bar spoon for 30-45 seconds. Fine-strain into the glass and garnish. Enjoy!
50 ml of Whiskey or Bourbon
1 cube or teaspoon of sugar
2-3 dashes of angostura bitters
1 twist of orange peel to garnish
Place the sugar and bitters into a rocks glass (chilled) and muddle together until mixed. Add some of the whisky and a few ice cubes and stir for 15-20 seconds to bring the temperature of the alcohol down in order to allow the ice to melt. Keep adding a little more whisky, then a little more ice, and continue to stir. Once ready garnish with a twist of orange peel (let the oils of the twist enter the drink to give a nice twist to your cocktail).
