Make Your Old Man a Manly Cocktail for Father’s Day

Andrea

Dads are some of the most selfless people on the planet. They’ve worked hard our whole lives to provide for us and make our lives a little bit easier. And if you’re a daddy’s girl, like me, then you know that he’s willing to do just about anything for you, without expecting anything in return.

At times, it seems that nothing we do could measure up to the sacrifices he’s made for us. But, if I’ve learned anything from my dad, it’s that it’s the little things that count. He doesn’t need or expect some grand gesture for Father’s Day. He’ll be happy to just spend a relaxing day with you.

And what better way to relax than with a manly cocktail? Here are three recipes to impress him with this weekend, one of them courtesy of Top Chef All-Stars winner Richard Blais.
