Aviation Cocktail Recipe

The Aviation cocktail is as blue as the sky.

Its recipe doesn't involve airplanes. But maybe it should.

The ingredient list has five items plus ice.


Dry Gin Maraschino Liqueur Crème de Violette Lemon Juice Maraschino Cherry Ice

Gin, Maraschino Liqueur and Crème de Violette are the recipe's 3 liquors.

We bought a bottle of Crème de Violette just for this recipe.

Fresh lemon juice is a key ingredient.

Adding a maraschino cherry is also key.

The Aviation is easy to craft without any special bar tools.

Don't let its blue color confuse you...

The Aviation is a sophisticated sipper.
