Manly Cocktail Recipes for the Summer

While nothing hits the spot better than a cold brewski on a hot summer's day, nothing says refined refreshment like a cocktail. They don't all come in some froofy glass with a pink hue; plenty of cocktails feature man's favorite liquor, whether its tequila, scotch or gin. These fancy cocktail recipes could even start a new Father's Day tradition (or at least help get some warm fuzzy feelings going).

This one is perfect for co-ed gatherings, with enough sweet to satisfy the ladies, but enough gin to satisfy the men.

  • .5 oz. Lemon Juice
  • .5 oz. Simple Syrup
