Here is the preparation of The Aviation Cocktail by Brazilian mixologist Diego Bastos, former of the Officina Resto Bar of Curitiba.
A special chapter of this bar is the cocktails. Behind the counter is a first-class team led by bartender José Augusto Swaiger, who provides creative and delicious drinks for the entire atmosphere, along with the creativity of Diego Bastos. With a New York air, Officina has a nice atmosphere where you can spend hours talking, tasting and eating.
