Me too. We don't use vodka much but when we do Tito's does the job nicely.

Add me to the list of Tito's fans. My go to vodka.
Tanqueray and tonic with a slice of lime. For me, this is about the best there is. Occasionally, I'll use a clone, Bombay Sapphire, the gin Bombay flavored to taste like Tanqueray. The original Bombay was too bland.
Aviation:

2 oz Bombay Sapphire gin
0.5 oz Lemon juice
0.5 oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur
0.25 oz Creme de Violet

Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a real maraschino cherry.

that sounds like a really ginny aviation

i up the creme de violet to .5
down the gin to 1.5oz

btw if you like it a touch sweeter esp if you're using fresh lemons

give the maraska maraschino a shot

I used to do .75 oz lemon juice, but found it too lemony. Will have to try the Maraska brand when I run out of Luxardo.
Ok just tried Death & Co's variation of the Aviation...I think I like it the best:

2 oz Plymouth gin
0.75 Lemon juice
0.5 oz Luxardo maraschino liquor
0.25 oz Simply syrup
0.25 oz 0.5 teaspoon Creme de Violet -EDIT-

I think the touch of simple syrup really makes the cocktail. Probably why G-man recommended the sweeter Maraska brand.

Oh it's 0.5 teaspoon Creme de Violet...mistakenly wrote 0.25 oz (my old recipe lol).
The gin is a touch too strong for my taste. But a 1.5oz I find to be perfectly balanced!

I'm using the st George bontanica
i dont know what they call this

2 parts rum
2 parts apple juice
1/2 part maple syrup
1/2 part lemon juice

wet top of glass and sprinkle nutmeg, insert cocktail.

I recommend muddling in a few slices of jalapeno and strain - it gives a nice kick.
I don't know if this has been made before, but if not, I'm claiming it. I call it a---

Midnight Manhattan (TM)
1 part Sweet Vermouth (I use Cocchi)
3 parts Rittenhouse Rye
3 t. Jack Rudy dark Bourbon cocktail cherry juice
2 Jack Rudy dark Bourbon cocktail cherries

It's a great drink TT. Problem is black strap rum is not easy to find. I mine this way:

1.5 oz Cruzan Black Strap rum
1.5 oz Pineapple juice
0.75 oz Campari
0.5 oz Lime juice
0.5 oz Simple syrup

Shake and strain into iced filled glass.

if you do have black strap rum, you can up the campari

if you just have aged dark rum like i do, I really recommend lowering the campari to .5 instead of .75.

The traditional recipe does have simple syrup, but i typically have my cocktails more boozy so i left it out and replaced it with the boozier malibu.

but it is quite an excellent cocktail.
Simple Bloody Mary's at our tailgate yesterday with Titos and Bloody Revolution Ribeye mixer. Topped with a squeeze of lime, feta stuffed olives and aged cheddar cubes and they were perfect for the event.
