Gotta Drink 'Em All! Cocktails for #010 Caterpie through #018 Pidgeot

#016: Pidgey

As Pidgey is, by all accounts, the quintessential flying Pokemon, it seems only fitting that its drink is a riff on a classic Aviation cocktail. 

A standard Aviation is a sweet and light drink that matches the herbal flavors of gin with creme de violette and maraschino liqueur. Now, as we have said before, we are striving to create cocktails that anybody can make at home without buying specialty products, and we're willing to bet you guys don't have a bottle of creme de violette laying around.

To make the Pidgey, simply add a shot of gin to a shaker along with about a half-pony each of lemon juice and maraschino juice from the cherry jar. Garnish with a cherry, and optionally, rim with cinnamon sugar to add a sand-attack to the drink. Personally, we prefer to keep our accuracy stat untouched, thank you very much.

TL;DR VERSION

Into a cocktail shaker, add 1.5 oz gin, .5 oz lemon juice, and .5 oz maraschino juice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, and garnish with a cherry.
