Every year on the weekend of the Super Bowl, Union Square Wines & Spirits holds a competition of various vodkas vs. gins called The Martini Bowl. Here's part of the tasting menu from today's tasting.

While I always prefer Bulldog Gin, this year, my pick was a local product, Seneca Drums Gin.

They served The Aviation Cocktail -- a classic! It's been a while since I've had this one and it was quite nice to try after such a long time ...
