A Toast to a Famous Few... (In liquid form!)

 "Here's to the Army and Navy and the battles they have won - here's to America's colors, the colors that never run."..."And may the wings of liberty never lose a feather."

For many years, it has been a tradition of sorts to honor a famous person, event, place or thing, with a beverage (many of which include copious amounts of alcohol).  Indeed, the Cold-War hero, the B-52, is honored with it's own adult beverage (Equal portions of Bailey's Irish Cream, Kahlua, and Grand Marnier layered in that order, served over or without ice).  We at Check-Six decided it was time to honor many of the other unsung heroes of aviation history, and the aircraft they flew, in mixed drink form.  Drawing upon our knowledge of both aviation history, and mixed cocktail lore & legend, we have compiled many a potent potable to cool your ills after a long day of wreck-chasing (or just any occasion that permits).  We have include the justification of EVERY ingredient to the drink to insure that it is truly symbolic of the events and aircraft it depicts.

We ask that you quaff these potions responsibly, and enjoy them thoroughly.
