This year, Father’s Day falls on June 18. Whether you’re celebrating a dad, grandpa, brother, uncle or friend, say cheers with these sips.
This blend of heritage cabernet clones is grown in Matchbook’s vineyards, located in Dunnigan Hills, California. This is a big cabernet with an incredibly smooth finish and layers of flavors that travel from oak to fruit to spicy peppercorn. Pair with an aged cheddar or Manchego cheese.
A Father’s Day Cocktail
- 1 ½ oz. Brother Justus American Whiskey
- ½ oz. sweet vermouth
- ½ oz. red bitter liqueur, like Campari
Add the Brother Justus whiskey, sweet vermouth and red bitter liqueur to a mixing pitcher; stir until well-chilled. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice, and enjoy this herbal, bitter classic, which pairs well with a baked brie en croute or other, nuttier flavored cheeses like aged Gouda.
