Make Your Own Barrel-Aged Cocktails for Dad @ Parallel Post in Trumbull!

Your dad already has a set of screwdrivers, drills, a laser level, C3P0, R2D2, and an entire garage worth of tools that he’ll probably never use, so what are you going to get him this Father’s Day?  Parallel Post in Trumbull is making that choice super easy:  get dad a beautiful 1 liter wooden barrel.  Yeah, the barrel is cool looking, but it’s also about what goes inside of that lovely wooden contraption.  Yes, you guessed it…liquor!  You’ll be able to help dad to get his drink on and create his own craft barrel-aged cocktail with either house liquor for $50 or top shelf choices for $75.  Whichever option you pick, you’ll have your choice of bitters, dried fruits, and other flavorings.  You’ll just need to call up (203) 380-6380 and get your special reservation with master mixologist Greg from 1-3 pm on Saturday or Sunday (6/15-16).  You’ll get direct instruction and true one-on-one time to make the perfect cocktail that will be aged with love.  Then, when the cocktail is perfectly aged, you need to invite us over to test it out.  You know, we’re just looking out for you to make sure you’re doing it right.
Then, when you’re doing putting your barrel-aged cocktail together, think about taking dad out for dinner too.  They’ll have a special menu just for him on both days, 12-10 pm:

    That’s an awesome gift idea! They are right down the road from me, I’ve been dying to go there!!


    • Hey Sarah. It’s a really awesome gift idea and completely one of a kind. :) How cool! You’ll have to try it out…we’ve heard great things and have been meaning to get there. It’s just a bit of a hike for us, so it makes it tougher to just go out for a quick bite.
