Aviation Gin cocktails are a fitting way to celebrate the return of transatlantic flights as the US opens its borders to fully vaccinated UK visitors this week.
Why not try the Amelia Earhart cocktail, named after the American aviation pioneer and author who was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic or The Aviation cocktail?
