The Aviation

Happy almost Spring y'all! We are so excited that the sun will be out soon so we're celebrating with a floral inspired cocktail! We have a new found love for this cocktail, The Aviation. With its dreamy purple hues and the subtle taste of lavender, it's the perfect drink to welcome spring. 

Spring Inspired Cocktails with Lemon and Junipero Gin from Anchor Steam Distillery in San Francisco 
Ingredients for an Aviator Cocktail. Junipero Gin, Luxardo Marachino Liqeur, Creme De Violette and lemons 


- 1 1/2 oz Junípero Gin
- 1 tsp Crème De Violette
- 1/2 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
- 3/4 oz Fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1/4 oz Simple Syrup
- 1 Luxardo Maraschino Cherry (not the artificial bright red ones, cherries aren't supposed to glow in the dark) 

Place your cocktail glass in the freezer or fill it with ice so it will be chilled when your drink is ready. Fill a shaker with spirits, mixers, and ice and shake it like a polaroid picture y'all. Next, strain the excellently shaken mixture into your chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with one maraschino cherry and enjoy! 

The Aviation Cocktail has  blue color with a Luxardo Maraschino Cherry Garnish that drops to the bottom in a martini glass. 

We hope you feel like Amelia Earhart soaring through the clouds which this drink just so happens to resemble!
