Aviation

The Aviation cocktail dates back to the early 20th century and is found in Hugo Ensslin’s “Recipes for Mixed Drinks.” Hugo printed this book in 1916 while working at the Wallick, a New York hotel. However, this cocktail did fall into obscurity in the intervening years due to Creme de Violette disappearing from the market. In 2007 Creme de Violette entered the market, and Aviation came back into fashion. Classic

Aviation has many variations due to its lemon-forward flavour, which leaves it unbalanced and tart. We add more Creme de Violette and some simple syrup to combat this. This gives a flowery taste that is well-balanced and enjoyable to drink. Try it out and let us know what you think.
