This Aviation American Gin cocktail, The Last Word, is another entry in the St. Patrick Day libation menu.

In between acting gigs, Ryan Reynolds apparently enjoys a mixed drink or two with a gin base.

He recently became co-owner of Aviation American Gin .

According to PR Newswire, the star of such films as “Deadpool,” “Green Lantern,” and “The Proposal” pursued the investment after tasting Aviation Gin for the first time.

“Aviation is the best tasting gin in the world. Once I tried it, I knew I wanted to get involved with the company in a big way,” he says in the news release.

The gin is crafted in small batches in Portland, Ore., according to a release.

And if your idea of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day (or, this year, weekend) is with a green-tinted beer, Aviation American Gin suggests this lime-colored, gin-based cocktail.

The Last Word

3⁄4 ounce Aviation American Gin

3⁄4 ounce Green Chartreuse

3⁄4 ounce Luxardo Maraschino

3⁄4 ounce freshly pressed lime juice

In a pint glass, add spirits and mixers. Fill with ice, shake vigorously and fine strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
