Top Gun - Top Cocktails

Thank you so much to everyone that joined us for Top Gun with Cocktails on Saturday night!!

As promised, these are the classic 80's cocktail recipes we used, so you can recreate them at home:

Aviation - of course, a refreshing gin based arrival drink

40 ml of your favourite gin (we used Bombay Sapphire)

10 ml creme de violet

10ml creme de maraschino

25 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

25 ml sugar syrup

Shake vigorously over ice and serve in a martini glass, garnished with a cocktail or maraschino cherry

Harvey Wallbanger

50 ml vodka (we used Russian Standard)

12.5 ml Galliano vanilla liqueur

85 ml orange juice, not from concentrate

Stir the vodka and orange juice in a highball glass with ice and then float the Galliano on top. Garnish with orange slice and Maraschino cherry. Nice and easy.

Sea Breeze

50 ml vodka

75 ml cranberry juice
