Goodbye Tequila, Hello Gin


Margaritas. There are many different ways to make them, but one thing we can all agree on is that they are DELICIOUS! One of the many benefits of working at a distillery is I have gotten the opportunity to play around with different cocktails. My first eye-opener was trying an Old Fashioned Cocktail made with our Aviation American Gin instead of whiskey and being blown away by how much I loved it. That was when I first realized that I could start substituting spirits in classic drink templates. Which brings us the cocktail of the hour: The Aviation Margarita. Try it and be surprised.

2 oz Aviation American Gin
3/4 oz Cointreau
3/4 oz Freshly pressed lime juice
1/4 oz Simple syrup
In a mixing glass, combine all spirits & mixers. Add ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a ice filled glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
