Hunting Down Father’s Day Gifts? Try These “Under $30” Spirits for Every Type of Dad!

Skip the hunting for Father’s Day gifts! Give Dad some amazing spirits (and a cocktail recipe) for him to celebrate HIS day!

The Grill-Master Dad

If your old man prides himself on his backyard BBQ-ing abilities, gift him with the perfect partner – E&J Brandy Peach, which mixes great with backyard staples – lemonade and iced tea – in the E&J Brandy Peach Palmer.





1 part E&J Peach
1 part Iced Tea
1 part Lemonade

Add all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker
Shake well – at least 40 seconds
Pour into your favorite cocktail glass
Add ice and garnish with lime wedge


The Taco Fanatic Dad

If your Dad’s signature recipe (or restaurant) is tacos, Camarena Silver, the most awarded tequila, is one of the best-tasting and smoothest tequilas on the market, and mixes wonderfully into the Camarena Margarita – the perfect companion to any taco.

Camarena Margarita


2 parts Camarena Silver
¾ part Simple Syrup / Agave Nectar
¾ part Lime Juice
½ part Triple Sec

1. Add ingredients into a shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously.
2. Strain into a glass filled with ice.
3. Garnish with lime wedge (or fresh sliced jalapeños, if you want to spice it up).



The Mom who filled both roles

For the mother that plays both roles, give her a gift that feels like the vacation she deserves – RumHaven’s fresh taste and tropical vibes will transport her straight to a beach-front cabana. RumHaven is perfect when mixed with pineapple juice and soda into the refreshing Haven on Earth cocktail.

Haven on Earth cocktail


2 parts RumHaven
2 parts Pineapple Juice
2 parts Club Soda

Add all ingredients into an ice-filled Collins glass.
Stir together to combine and chill.
Garnish with pineapple or mint.

Old-Fashioned Dad!

If your dad is always ordering Old Fashioned’s, skip the classics and surprise him with a Camarena’s Reposado expression for a twist on the typical cocktail with the Camarena Reposado Old Fashioned.

Camarena Reposado Old Fashioned


2 parts Camarena Reposado
½ parts Agave Nectar
2 dashes of Bitters

1. Add ingredients into a double old fashioned rocks glass filled with ice.
2. Stir to combine.
3. Garnish with an orange peel.



The Spirits-Loving Dad

For the Dad who seeks the smoothest tasting spirits, Camarena, the most awarded tequila, just released the newest member to its portfolio –
Camarena Anejo Tequila, which is so smooth that it is best sipped neatly.



Camarena Anejo Tequila,
Lowball glass or a good-sized shot glass.

For the “on the rocks” dad, fill low-ball glass with ice cubes
Pour Camarena Anejo Tequila and garnish with a lime wedge

For the “straight up” dad,
Use the same glass or a generously sized shot glass, pour a healthy amount of tequila in the glass,
Add a lime wedge and serve!
