WITH Father’s Day on Sunday, really show him you care and mix-up a range of beer cocktails, sure to impress and put a spin on the original pint.

With a selection of unique cocktails to choose from, you can now help your dad put his feet up and relax after working his socks off.

Looking for something with the wow factor, yet not wanting to stray too far from his favourite beer tipple, tap into the current trend and serve up a Beer-tini from thebar.com.

A modern twist on a Martini, The Diving Header is a full bodied, rich, dark drink with added spice and fire of Captain Morgan rum. With subtle sweetness from the cola, this is a delicious cocktail perfect for dad’s who are fans of Ireland’s favourite beer.
