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