Classic Cocktails: Aviation at Marion Street Cheese Market

image

The Aviation: a drink that looks positively radioactive and tastes like heaven. The floral notes from the gin and violet liqueur balance the dash of sweet cherry, and fresh lemon juice adds a tangy brightness at the end. The only thing wrong with this drink is that it took me way too long to try one.

Marion Street Cheese Market’s Aviation:
Letherbee gin
Creme de violette
Luxardo Maraschino
Lemon juice
Lemon twist for garnish

I can’t wait to whip one of these up at home, maybe with a cherry garnish in lieu of the lemon twist. Next stop: Binny’s for some violet liqueur!
