The [Boeing] Tailspin - a localized cocktail

The Pacific Northwest possesses rich aviation history and it just got richer with this localized version of an excellent gin-based cocktail. I used Cascade Mountain Gin out of Oregon as a "shout-out" to Southern Cascadia. This gin is deeply infused with juniper berries - maybe too much so. But after I mixed up this concoction, I really didn't care. One can see why it has the name that it does. A few of these and you wouldn't care if the jack screw malfunctioned on the 737 you unenthusiastically got on so that you could pedal your product in Pittsburgh.

The Tailspin
1 oz. Gin
1 oz. Green Chartreuse
1 oz. Sweet Vermouth
2-3 dashes of Campari or Orange bitters

Stir all the ingredients with ice and strain into your glass.
