Last weekend in NYC, I felt like having a cocktail after the offline with the NYC crew. An Aviation seemed a good choice following the intensely delicious 1907 Bual Madiera, which was also very heavy on the palate. Lacking the ingredients for the Aviation, with a bit of discussion, the bartender came up with this tasty and refreshing libation:

1 1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz St Germain
1/2 oz Maraschino Cherry liqueur
1/2 oz lemon
Shaken with ice.

Light, refreshing, tart, with a floral note was the request. Success led to a second round.

Omg where has this drink been all my life.

It's bloody fantastic
It is a good one. We had a few to many on Sunday which made Monday morning pretty rough.

Never tried B&S with Blood Orange I'm curious. Btw I prefer mine 2 parts Scotch 1 part rest.
Smokey Spicy Passionfruit Margarita

1 oz Olmeca Altos Reposado tequila
1 oz Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
1.5 oz Passionfruit juice
1 oz Lime juice
0.5 oz Agave nectar
Jalapeno slices

Muddle jalapeno slices with agave nectar and lime juice. Add rest. Shake and double strain into a cocktail glass.

Btw I notice that I'm leaning more toward Tommy style margaritas nowadays - much more balanced. Traditional style is much too cloying IMHO.
