12 Cocktails for Father's Day

by:
June 13, 2014

One day every spring, we pull out all the stops for our moms. We shower them in flowers, in cakes, in lovely, fizzy drinks -- all to show them just how much we care. But our dads? They get a pack of golf balls. Maybe a last-minute steak.

This year, let’s do better. Forget the cuff links and ties that will never see the light of day -- we’re giving our dads what they really want: a drink. Whether yours is a Sazerac man or the beer-and-basketball type, we rounded up the cocktails you need to celebrate Father’s Day right. Treat dear old dad to a springy dinner -- hold the steak -- and then pour his drink of choice. He’ll thank you later.

You really need a Manhattan on this list of "Dad Drinks."

MMMMM a whisky sour is my favourite drink. After a glass of Glenmorangie Nector d'or... ;)
