From Wednesday, May 22 – Wednesday, July 3, Aviation American Gin is asking fans to upload your best cocktail photos to the Aviation American Gin Facebook page.  Enter for a chance to win the ultimate cocktail-lover’s getaway grand prize, including an all-expenses paid trip to Portland, tour and tasting at renowned House Spirits Distillery, bartending classes and more!

Here's what you have to do:
  • Step 1: Become a fan of Aviation Gin on Facebook
  • Step 2: Upload your photo according to each week's cocktail art theme via Facebook
  • Step 3: Share your entry with friends and check back often to see if you've won!
Each Wednesday during the contest period, Aviation American Gin posts the new weekly theme and announces the weekly prize winner. Week 1, the cocktail theme was “BBQs and Booze” in honor of Memorial Day weekend; Week 2, the cocktail theme was "Colorful Cocktails."  Now it's time for Week 3 and the theme is.......“Cocktails with Friends.” To get into the theme, I had a little fun with some bartender friends.....Chis Amirault and Kiowa Bryan, who both work at Eveleigh on Sunset Blvd.  As I love gin, I asked them to whip up some Aviation American Gin cocktails for me and the rivalry began. After a couple dirty looks at each other, they got to work. 20130605_184741  
Recently Martín Kaiser, Winemaker at Doña Paula in Argentina, and Sebastián Labbé, Winemaker at Carmen Wines, in Chile visited Santa Monica on a hot summer day to showcase their wines. Overlooking the ocean, it was a treat to meet these men and taste their wines that showcase the best their neighboring countries have to offer. 9233482655_9bb3de27fd 9233455491_88f0958a58 ARGENTINA 9233474691_c3950f0568
