I'm usually a dirty martini kinda gal, but I saw this recipe in Sunset magazine and had to try it because its so pretty!
Green Gin Cocktail Recipe
It really doesn't taste of gin, nor of celery. Just tastes fresh really. Definitely a do-again.
Whats your most recent favorite cocktail recipe?

Since I moved to Chicago, I've become a bit of a whiskey freak, and I've developed a great fondness for a well-mixed Manhattan. With this ridiculously humid Chicago heat, though, I've been finding whiskey to be a little heavy for me, and I've lately been getting into gin cocktails.
I'm now nuts about the Aviation.

Having a bit of a sweet tooth even in the heat, when it gets really hot I crave a
1 oz Frangelico hazelnut liqueur
1/2 oz Amaretto almond liqueur
1/2 oz Bailey's Irish cream
Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker half-filled with cracked ice. Strain into an old-fashioned glass 1/3 filled with ice cubes, and serve.

Maraschino liqueur is kinda neat, huh? It didn't really taste like I expected.
Anyway, you might also like these in summer:

Okay so I had a gin bloody mary for the first time (I'm not sure what they're called -- I've seen a couple different names). It was the best bloody mary I ever had! I am a definite convert, not liking vodka that much in the first place, myself.
I haven't actually tried to make this, but I've got a theory stemming from my dislike of sticking a gigantic, distracting celery stalk in a drink that I'd like to try out.
