As mentioned in my previous post, a friend brought me a bottle of Aviation Gin. I really like it to the point that I think is now my favourite gin.
The first cocktail we made with it is a classic gin cocktail, a Gimlet.
I put some martini glasses in the freezer.
I put all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker 1/2 filled with ice. I shook hard until the shaker was frosty cold.
I strained the cocktail into the glass and served.
This is one of the best cocktails we’ve made. Simple, classy, tasty. I can’t wait to make it again.
