Father’s Day is a time to celebrate the old man for raising you up right, teaching you how to throw a baseball, tie a tie, and, heck, tie one on. So set yourselves up on the front porch this Sunday, and let the guy tell a few tall tales with an Old Fashioned in hand.
This one is super simple—less mixing, more talking—thanks to the Bittermilk New Orleans Style Old Fashioned Rouge. The mixing serum is strong and complex, with hints of absinthe and bitters because of the wormwood, fennel, and gentian root ingredients.

- 4 parts rye (or other whiskey or bourbon)
- 1 part Bittermilk New Orleans Style Old Fashioned Rouge
