September Martini of the Month Pays Homage to the Air Races

The Aviation Martini with Aviation Gin, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur and Lemon

RENO, Nev. (August 21, 2013) – Roxy’s Bar & Lounge, inside the Eldorado, is celebrating the National Championship Air Races with “The Aviation Martini” available during the month of September. The martini of the month is a simple and unique balance of gin, maraschino liqueur and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

That’s the classic Aviation cocktail invented by barman Hugo Ensslin at New York’s Hotel Wallick almost a century ago. One taste is all it took for Aviation American Gin co-founder Ryan Magarian to realize that instead of being limited to martinis and gin and tonics, “gin, in the hands of a passionate and well trained bartender, just might be the world’s most mixable spirit.” So a brand name, and a mission, was born.

Aviation American Gin is a dry gin from House Spirits Distillery, a renowned Portland based craft distillery co-owned by NFL legend Joe Montana. Aviation American Gin embodies a shift away from the usual overabundance of juniper toward a more forward balance of botanicals, with rich, floral and savory notes of lavender, cardamom and sarsaparilla to capture the lushness, spice, creativity and freshness of the Pacific Northwest.

Experience Aviation American Gin and the Aviation Martini at Roxy's Bar & Lounge this September. Roxy’s is famous for its 102 martinis and selection of 350 wines. The chic bar has also been voted "Best Martini" and "Best Vodka Selection" numerous times in Best of Reno polls. Guests can enjoy live piano and vocals nightly and happy hour from 4:30 - 6:30pm with $5 martinis.
