Happy Hour: Give Dad What He Really Wants This Year, A Proper Drink

By Ashley Beck | June 14, 2013

Father’s Day is this Sunday and if you haven’t found the perfect gift to say, “Thanks, Dad!” you’re in luck. What shows your appreciation more than providing the old man with a refreshing drink. It’s the least you can do after all he’s done for you.

But gee! What to choose… with all the crazy variants of cocktails these days, its hard to know which one will suit Poppa’s palate. That’s why I have decided to provide you with some recipes of the classics for the man who’s always said “My way or the highway”. So if you don’t already know what spirit lifts his, do some research and then try it in one of these oldies but goodies. Some of the most original and  refined, just like him.
