The Green Plymouth Aviation

Just in time for your big St. Patrick's Day Weekend, here's a green drink to fulfill my necessary green drink post that is required by Blogger Law.

Sure, there are a ton of them out every year, but I like Aviation's a lot, so this one fits right in.


A classic martini with a sour twist


50 ml Plymouth Gin
35 ml Lemon Juice
15 ml Maraschino Liqueur
1 dash Syrup de Gomme

- Fill mixing glass with ice
- Add the Plymouth Gin, lemon juice (freshly squeezed), maraschino liqueur and syrup de gomme (Simple Syrup)
- Shake well
- Strain into a martini glass
- Add lemon zest garnish

The recipe came to me from Plymouth so I used their gin for it (and I'd recommend it), but you can use your favorite as well.
