Cheers to Dad

Shake up some summer fun and raise a toast to the fathers in your life with these classic cocktails.

Nothing says relax like kicking back with a cool cocktail in hand. Instead of heading to the bar, create your own at home this Father’s Day. Asia Seavers is the mixologist extraordinaire behind Mixology-Cle, whose virtual cocktail creating classes were a hit among our Members during quarantine. Now, you can celebrate Dad with these classic summery sips—with a twist—complete with pro bartender tips from Asia herself.  

Here’s what’s shakin’! 


1.5 oz Amaretto 
1.5 oz Scotch  
Lemon twist for garnish 

Instructions: Pour all ingredients over ice in a lowball glass. 

Pro Tip: Pour over a large ice sphere or cube for an elegant touch.


2 oz Cognac  
¾ oz Lemon Juice  
¾ oz Triple Sec  
½ oz Maple Syrup 
Orange twist for garnish 

Instructions: Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain and serve in a coupe glass.  

Pro Tip: While a sidecar is traditionally served with a sugar rim or simple syrup to balance the acidity of the lemon, we recommend swapping it out for a touch of maple syrup instead. 


1 oz Gin 
1 oz Sweet Vermouth 
1 oz Campari 
Orange peel for garnish 

Instructions: Add ice to a rocks glass and add in the gin, vermouth, and Campari. Give it a stir, garnish with an orange peel, and serve. 

Pro Tip: Flame your orange peel and circle the rim to add an aromatic to your beverage experience. 


1 oz Peach Moonshine (or peach vodka) 
1.5 oz Tequila 
3/4 oz Lime Juice 
3/4 oz Simple Syrup 
1 oz Triple Sec 
Peach slice and/or fresh herbs for garnish 

Instructions: Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain and serve in a Collins glass with fresh ice.  

Pro Tip: Slap your herbs before serving in order to release the aroma.
