Aviation Cocktail - Consumatorium

Aviation Cocktail

The Aviation Cocktail is a classic drink – one of those created by some bartender at a fancy hotel in New York during the early 20th century like a thousand other drinks. The drink has an unusual flavor with the gin balanced by the sweetness of the maraschino liquor.

  • 2 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Maraschino Liquor (Luxardo recommended)
  • 1/4 oz Lemon Juice (fresh lemon is always better, but who has time?)
  • Cherry garnish (again, Luxardo recommended – you won’t be sorry)
Shake over ice and serve in a cocktail glass.

The original recipe calls for 1/4 oz of Creme de Violette as well, but lots of versions drop it. Who the hell has Creme de Violette in their bar anyway?

I don't know what it takes to become a professional mixologist, but I'm going to night school at my own home bar to achieve that status. For now, I'm an amateur cocktail creator who enjoys learning about new drinks and rediscovering the classics.
