Ryan Reynolds meets gin, likes gin, buys into company
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.

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.
