We’re big fans of the Aviation as a cocktail, and of the Manhattan. Swan Song, a recipe courtesy of Brenda Terry (Tampa Yacht Club), is a mindblowing blend of the two. It’s a perfect achievement of our three biggest criteria for a good drink: great flavor, beautiful presentation, and a lot of things working in perfect unison. This cocktail is just that: a lot of great flavors that all play nice together down to the very last drop.
2 oz Bombay Sapphire Gin
1/2 oz tarragon infused Martini & Rossi Extra Dry
1/4 oz lemon cordial
3-4 dashes Homemade “bricky” bitters (green cardamom pods, dried lavender, allspice, and anise bitters)
Combine all ingredients and stir in a mixing glass. Pour into a martini or coupe glass, and garnish with a lemon twist and a cherry.
