Dads have been doling out sage advice for generation after generation. So, why not turn the tables and serve him some – in the form of a whiskey cocktail! The Boston Harbor Distillery is sharing their Father’s Day cocktail recipe using their carefully and locally crafted Putnam Rye Whiskey.

Don’t feel like making it yourself? Head to The Boston Harbor Distillery this Saturday, take dad on a tour of the historic building and working distiller, and then hang out at the cocktail bar and enjoy this handsome specialty cocktail, and perhaps one or two more. 😉
