Impress your dad and let him take a well-deserved break while you make him a Father’s Day-themed cocktail.

Dominic Venegas, the brand ambassador for Pernod Ricard, takes his cocktails very seriously — and now he’s taking Fox News behind the bar to share two of his favorite recipes that, hopefully, our dads will enjoy too.

“One of the many things I enjoy about making drinks is introducing people to new ways to enjoy their favorite spirits through classic cocktails,” says Venegas. “There’s a bit of elegance and history to the classics, and every father loves a classic.”

Venegas starts with a play on Scotch on the rocks that he names “The Founding Father.”

“Scotch rocks, in more ways than you know,” he said.

As an alternative, sweeter option, Venegas serves up a play on the traditional tequila-based Paloma, featuring a lot of seasonal fruit, which he aptly has dubbed the “Papa-loma.”
