This series highlights the International Bartenders Association (IBA) The Unforgettables cocktails. I have decided to work my way through this series of cocktails to investigate the classics as I teach myself mixology and build out my home bar.

This is the cocktail I used to open the bar last month. Part of me thought this might end up being my go-to cocktail. And it may. I like it very much.

That recipe called for a different ratio of the ingredients. This one from IBA I think is a bit simpler. There is something about it that I like. Frankly, there’s not much not to like about Aviations. The issue is ensuring the ingredients as available and that the lemon juice is fresh. It would absolutely stand out if it this came from a bottle.
