Cheers to the dads in your life, and welcome to Thirsty Thursday... on Sunday.
I know, I know... It's not Thursday, but that's ok because, honestly, every day is a good day for a good drink. So, in celebration of Father's Day, I'm sharing my personal favorite, a classic cocktail that you and the fathers in your life are sure to enjoy.
If you choose to forgo the other ingredients and just skip straight to a shot of bourbon, I understand. We all have those crazy weeks or dysfunctional family gatherings. However you like your drinks, whether that be stiff, dirty, shaken, stirred, sweet, or strong, I just applaud you for making it through the week. So without further ado, let's get to it!
