- Benny Goodman brings jazz to Carnegie Hall in 1938, today.
Jazz has been called “America’s classical music,” a label that does more than just recognize its American origins. The label also makes the case that jazz is worthy of aesthetic consideration alongside music usually thought of as “classical.” In the current era, when programs of Duke Ellington and J.S. Bach often draw the same highbrow crowds, that argument hardly seems controversial. In the 1930s, however, the notion was almost laughable, which is what made Benny Goodman’s January 16, 1938, concert at New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall so revolutionary. Goodman and his supporting cast claimed a new place for jazz on the American cultural scene that night, in what has come to be seen as the most important jazz concert in history.

- Last night at work I made an old prohibition staple, the aviation cocktail, using Aviation gin. 🍸
I've never had one, but I wasn't sold. It tasted like a sour patch kid made love to a flower patch!!!! 👉🌸And...do I need to add "not in a good way?" 🙁
These products are all great, but this taste just wasn't for me. However, for those sour patch fans out there, here's the recipe:
🌸 AVIATION 🌸
👉1.5 Oz Aviation gin (@aviationgin)
👉.5 Oz lemon juice
👉.5 Oz maraschino liqueur (@luxardousa)
👉.25 creme de viollette (@giffardusa)
