Dad’s Bittersweet Truth
Nothing beats some advice from Dad; to ease some of that truth, sip on a favorite like the Negroni, but with an extra kick using tequila instead of gin. The richer, yet surprisingly smooth, profile provides a unique way to enjoy tequila on Dad’s special day — all while relishing in candid exchanges (because Dad never holds back).
1 part Tres Agaves Añejo Tequila
¾ part Cynar
½ part Punt e Mes
½ part Carpano Antica
Stir all ingredients and serve up with an orange twist.
Shake espresso or coffee-infused Sugar Island Spiced Rum and lime juice over ice and strain into a Collins glass. Top with ginger beer. Garnish with a lime wheel and candied ginger.
