'50s Gentleman's Delight

Regardless if dad, grandpa, or another significant fatherly figure first became a proud papa at the turn of the century or in 2013, there’s a drink for each and every one of them. Here’s a plethora of picks for the male parent who helped us grow up to our present selves.

In honor of 1953's Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Marilyn Monroe proclaimed "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend." The Gentleman's Delight (created by San Francisco mixologist Duggan McDonnell) isn't as pricey, but it will put a similar smile on dad's face.
