This is an unabashed response to anyone who insists a martini must be dry. Aviation is a sweeter, less juniper-heavy gin that shines with a moderately sweet blanc vermouth.

  • 2¼ oz Aviation gin
  • ¾ oz blanc vermouth
  • garnish: lemon twist

Add to cocktail shaker with plenty of ice. Stir well, then strain into a martini glass or coupe.

Garnish with a lemon twist.
