I have already created my Christmas cocktail for the holiday season, the Aviation Santa Sighting. However, you also need a hot seasonal drink for those cold winter days. Enter the Hot Candy Cane. Continue reading Hot Candy Cane
The Christmas entertaining season is here. I decided I needed a nice seasonal cocktail. The Aviation Santa Sighting is what I came up with. Continue reading Aviation Santa Sighting
I really like an Old Fashioned and made one in a previous post. You’ll note in my prior post that I used a good Canadian rye whisky. However, they always seem to use bourbon when I order one in a bar, even here in Canada. Don’t get me wrong, a nice bourbon Old Fashioned is very tasty. I just prefer Canadian rye. I think it has a smoother richer taste.
I loved lemonade when I was a kid. A friend’s mother used to make pink lemonade from real lemons. I don’t know the recipe but it was a real treat. We had enough Aviation gin left for one more cocktail. It was a wonderful warm day. It was time to experiment. Continue reading Aviation Wing Commander Collins
The last cocktail we made when Heather and Bill came over with the bottle of Aviation gin was one we made up by experimentation. We had to taste and try several variations until we came up with the one we really liked. Sigh, the things I do for you, my readers. Continue reading Aviation Wild Blue Yonder
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. Continue reading Aviation Gin Gimlet
It was time to make another cocktail. We tried a French 75 which dates back to early 1900s in Paris. Apparently, it was called the French 75 in comparison to a 75 mm cannon. Sounds like my kind of drink! Continue reading French 75 Cocktail
We are back to some of the more classic cocktails. The El Presidente Martini is a drink that has been around for a long time. There are several different drinks called an El Presidente, this is a simple martini version. Continue reading El Presidente Martini
We have tried a lot of cocktails and had a lot of fun but there is a downside to experimenting with cocktails. You end up with a lot of alcohol that you don’t know how to use. We bought absinthe to make Sazeracs. They were tasty but don’t use very much absinthe. So what do you do with a mostly full bottle of absinthe? We made an Absinthe Fizz. Continue reading Absinthe Fizz
