Inspiration comes from many places. This week we were inspired by Ryan Reynolds and Ash Lewis (@professional_lush) to create our version of this dill infused gin cocktail. We recently watched Ryan's newest movie, The Adam Project on Netflix where he plays a time traveling fighter pilot... so we thought now would be a good time to break out his Aviation American Gin. We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @staynfocusimages
