With Father’s Day just around the corner this coming Sunday 20th June, we thought we should write about a fun cocktail to celebrate this special day for dads.
Canadian-American actor, producer and co-owner of Aviation American Gin, Ryan Reynolds has created a fun, tongue in cheek cocktail that he has called the Aviation Gin Vasectomy Cocktail with his very own Aviation Gin, the world’s highest rated gin for the world’s highest rated job, dad.
To plug this delicious new cocktail, Reynolds has put together an amusing new advert which you can watch below, titled the World’s Highest Rated Job, which shows Reynolds mixing his new cocktail, and may also help you in preparing your very own cocktail at home.
To prepare the Aviation Gin Vasectomy Cocktail you will need 45ml Aviation American Gin, 30ml Cranberry Juice, 15ml Fresh Squeeze Lemon Juice, 85ml Tonic and to garnish, one whole orange.
Frist fill a glass with ice and pour in some cranberry juice. Then top it up with tonic and add a touch of lemon juice. Finally add 45ml of Aviation American Gin and garnish it with a slice of orange.
If you want to treat your dad to this fun cocktail kit, it is available to purchase from Letterbox Cocktails and Not on the High Street for £10.45 per cocktail kit. The cocktail comes pre-batched with a Ryan Reynolds Father’s Day postcard included.
Aviation American Gin is the world’s highest rated gin (97 points, Wine Enthusiast), establishing a new style of American gin that is softer and smoother, with juniper in the background and citrus and floral notes in the front, making it the perfect base for a variety of cocktails and is crafted in small batches in Portland, Oregon.
