Boozy Activities For Father’s Day, Liquor Courtesy Of Cask Cartel
Celebrate Father's Day with your old man the grown-up way... glass of whiskey in hand. After all, whiskey and whiskey-related items continue to appear on every Father’s Day gift list. Consider that a sign. When in doubt of what to get, whiskey is the answer. And to help you out this Father’s Day, we have rounded up some of our favorite boozy activities that are definitely dad-approved.
Mix up a whiskey-based cocktail.
A classic — say, an Old Fashioned — will do the trick on Father’s Day. As one of the oldest and best-known mixed drinks of all, Old Fashioneds are dead-simple to make. Place one sugar cube (or one teaspoon superfine sugar) in your highball glass and add several dashes of Angostura bitters and a few drops of water. Add two ounces of your favorite bourbon and several ice cubes. Stir quickly to chill the drink. Feeling super-fancy? Garnish with a maraschino cherry or an orange slice. Memories are sure to be created when you drink a couple of these with your pops.
Host a bourbon-tasting.
Ask family members to bring a few different bottles to dad's place (or have your family chip in beforehand, so you can control the selection). Here is a tasting party guide:
- Add a drop or two of distilled water to each pour; this will help open up the aromas.
- Engage your senses of smell and taste to detect flavors and characteristics in the bourbon. Is it woodsy or smoky, or more fruity and floral? Are there sweet or buttery notes? Nutty, earthy, and herbal are also common descriptors of bourbons.
- The goal here is to compare and contrast, just like in those high-school essays, with the intent of discovering what you enjoy most about this spirit.
