A classic Aviation is my go-to spring cocktail.
Citrus-sy and delicately floral, it’s tart without being too sharp, sweet without being sickly and easy to whip up at a moment’s notice.
The perfect cocktail for bloom season – or any Friday celebration throughout the year!
It’s one of the simplest cocktail known to man.
There’s only a handful of ingredients and they keep forever, so you can always have them in the cupboard just in case.
That, a simple shaker and a few minutes and you’re good to go, making the Aviation a great cocktail to make whether for one, two or a group and in any environment.
I’m thinking picnic party in a meadow… Who’s joining?
