You Are Cordially Invited to Champagne Sunday!

Today’s Champagne Sunday recipe is an homage to my BFF and ultimate Doll, FT! She introduced me to this cocktail during a marathon Dolls’ evening at Wit & Wisdom at the Four Seasons. It’s true name is The Aviator, but I have renamed it, “Have A Little Faith.” Peep the mixology below.

“Have A Little Faith”

The Aviator

Ingredients.
2 ounces of Hendricks Gin
1/4 ounce Maraschino Liqueur
1/2 ounce Fresh Lemon Juice
Dash of Creme de Violette

The Mixology.
Pour ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and strain. Lately, I am crushing on the Nambe Infinity Cocktail Shaker.

Garnish with a flamed lemon peel, Luxardo Cherry and serve.  Chin! Chin!

You Are Cordially Invited to Champagne Sunday!!!

Last week I traveled to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for business. It was super cold and windy when my business colleagues and I arrived, making the idea of venturing outside of the hotel for dinner a non-starter. Luckily, The Colcord Hotel had a restaurant attached, Flint, which made our dinner decision easy.

Dinner was great, but the piece-de-resistance was my St. Germain Champagne Cocktail. It really was wondeful. So much so, that I called the restaurant for the recipe when I returned home, knowing that it would be my next featured drink on Champagne Sunday. Peep the mixology.
