Father’s Day Drink Recipes From Bulleit Bourbon and George Dickel

Bulliet Says Happy Fathers Day

Father’s Day comes but once a year, and it’s a great time to have a drink — responsibly, of course.

Here are some Father’s Day drink recipes provided by Bulleit Bourbon and George Dickel, which is a whisky. In the spirit of full disclosure, I have not tried these beverages but I would like to because they sound quite tasty. Also: these beverages contain alcohol. You should know that, but I feel the need to mention it.

These recipes were provided to us by the same folks who sent us on a couple of DaddyTips Road Trips. We like them.

Enough yapping! Here’s the drinks:

  • 1.3 oz. Bulleit Bourbon (25 oz. per bottle)
  • 4 oz. ginger ale
  • 1 slice(s) lemon
  • 2 dash(es) bitters

Preparation: Serve on the rocks. Garnish with a slice of lemon.

Even though Father’s Day means it’s a “family day”, the special time dedicated to Dad should be a joyous occasion. By whipping up the Father’s Day Cheer, you are guaranteed to have Dad grinning ear to ear.

Light on the stomach and sweet in taste, the Anytimer speaks for itself. Whether you are enjoying a cocktail during Father’s Day brunch (after 12:00 PM of course) or sitting by the pool for happy hour, the Anytimer is for all acceptable hours during the day and evening.
