The Corpse Reviver No. 2

Corpse Reviver No. 2

The debate continues as to whether The Corpse Reviver No. 2 is the ultimate hair of the dog concoction, but there is little disagreement on the fact that the cocktail is sensational. First served at the Ritz in Paris back in the 1920s, this cocktail will awake your senses. I have always enjoyed Aviation American Gin […]

Aviation Green Snapper

Green Snapper Cocktail

As far as holidays go, St. Patrick’s Day is an easy sell — all you have to do is show up wearing something green and have a drink, whether it’s green beer, Irish whiskey, Irish cream, Guinness, or some unfortunate combination of those last three things. The holiday is by no means authentically Irish; it’s […]

How to Make a Heart Cocktail Garnish

Heart Garnish 2

Google “Valentine’s Day cocktails” and you’ll see an avalanche of pink and red, complete with rose petal and candy garnishes. Nothing wrong with that — we like fun too! That said, sometimes a classic cocktail like a Martinez or Bee’s Knees (both pictured here) is all you need to round out the perfect evening with […]

The Cocktails You Need for Kick-off

Super Bowl Cocktails

My poor father. The only brother to his three wild sisters goes off to get married, and is blessed with three equally wild daughters. To help him cope with the heavy amount of estrogen in his life, my sisters and I would watch football with him on Sundays and pretend we understood why he was […]

Tropic Harvest Cocktail

Tropical Harvest Cocktail

As the seasons change, we find our culinary and cocktail choices changing.  We watch our grocery list selections transform from carefree barbecue summer fare into slow-cooker comforts.  Our cravings for those sparkly, effervescent libations on the rocks begin to wane, and in their place, the warming sensations of all things mulled and spiced show up to […]

Cocktail Pairings: Vietnamese-Style Fish with Turmeric and Dill + Aviation Martini

DSC_0026

Most food lovers have the classic pairings essentially memorized: pinot noir with mushrooms and earthy vegetables, cab with steak, sauvignon blanc with greens, and so on. In recent years, though, more and more chefs and bartenders have been paying attention to pairing cocktails with meals, and the principles remain the same — to look for […]

Make-A-Gift Day

Aviation gift blog

Make-a-Gift Day is December 3rd, and I so appreciate the intrinsic value of gift-giving. Particularly gifts which make a “tailored-just-for-you” declaration to the receiver. The whole definition of what a thoughtfully crafted gift embodies: altruistic expressionism, makes me glow from the inside out. I’m not the kind of gift-giver grabbing randomly for trinkets and baubles […]

Juniper Shortbread with Aviation Gin Icing

Juniper Shortbread 4

Unlike fruit cake, holiday cookies are a tradition without much room for improvement. They’re easy, they’re festive, they’re fun to make, and even when they’re not the best, they’re still enjoyable. A cookie, like Adele, can do no wrong. That said, there are some ways to take them to the next level, especially if you’re […]

Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Stocking Stuffer Blog 1

It is that time again, my friends. The time to buy stuff for people we know, some of whom we love, for a holiday that we are vaguely familiar with. I kid, I kid! It’s the holiday season and many of you are no doubt looking for grown-up stocking stuffers/tools for facilitating debauchery. And we […]

Saturn Punch

Saturn #2

Here come the holidays! The intensity of it all is staggering, isn’t it? Now, I don’t know about you, but I’ve barely had time to take down and pack away the plastic pumpkins, bats and skeletons. I haven’t even thought to sit quietly and pen my Thanksgiving dinner shopping list, let alone figure out the […]
