Aviation Gin Gimlet at

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.

As we were using their gin, I went to the Aviation Gin website and used their recipe. It is a pretty standard Gimlet recipe.

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.

The Verdict

This is one of the best cocktails we’ve made. Simple, classy, tasty. I can’t wait to make it again.
