Scotch Cocktails for Father's Day

Scotch is a bar basic. Served with or without ice, you rarely see it mixed in a cocktail. Some would even say that’s it’s sacrilegious. But it’s not entirely true.

Scotch is a bar basic. Served with or without ice, you rarely see it mixed in a cocktail. Some would even say that’s it’s sacrilegious. But it’s not entirely true. Scotch may be a hard drink to mix but it can be done. These classic drinks are proof.

And if you want something that’s a little closer to home, I also threw in an original concoction that’s inspired by Filipino ingredients.

With Father’s day around the corner, why not whip these scotch drinks for you and your dad for good times and great memories.
