Father’s Day is coming up and we generally think of beer and barbecue. But if you want to treat the man in your life to something a little different, try this delicious concoction. Even though it is made with whiskey, the sodas lighten it up and make it the perfect afternoon cocktail.
Grab an old-fashioned or highball glass (depends on how large a cocktail you want), add some ice, then the ingredients, stir, then add an extra squeeze of lime juice on top.
You can also substitute in rum, but I prefer whiskey for my taste. The whiskey adds much more depth of flavor. Also, you can muddle in some fresh mint at the beginning, especially if using rum.
Save the nicer cork stoppers from your single malt whiskeys, ryes, bourbons, tequilas, etc. Use them to cork left over wines, they seal better and are much easier to remove. Just be sure to select one that fits snugly.
