The Happy Hour: Aviation

imageThe origins of Aviation Cocktail remain rather murky. Some sources, such as David Wondrich’s “Imbibe!”, tell it was first printed in a 1916 book by Hugo Ensslin called “Recipes for Mixed Drinks”. Aviation has established itself as a popular mixture over the years and recently was dubbed one of the classics for aficionado imbibers.

* 1/2 oz lemon juice (15 ml)
