Aviation Cocktail Recipe

Sip on an Aviation Cocktail and Your Troubles Will Take Wing

While some cocktails are beloved for their crowd-pleasing nature — like the margaritas and dark and stormys of the world — others stand out for their assertive, potentially polarizing flavors. The aviation, a classic Prohibition-era cocktail, might not appeal to all, but its fans are of the ardent sort. Gin, lemon juice, crème de violette, maraschino liqueur, and cherries (no, not the glowingly red sort) mingle into an elegant, lavender-hued beverage that you'll likely either love or hate; the only way to find out is to try it for yourself!
