How To Make The Aviation Cocktail

The Aviation Cocktail, a classic gin and maraschino liqueur recipe that will really give you an appreciate for the flavor of maraschino liqueur…for good or bad.

Taste Profile: Crisp gin followed by an organic “weed/grass” like flavor with fairly forward earthy tones. Big maraschino liqueur impact on this cocktail.

We are using Oxley Gin for this cocktail because itapos;s probably the best gin in the world right now. The question we have, does Maraschino liqueur kill the great qualities of Oxley or amplify them–it is a tough call.

Question of the Day: Have you ever spent $50 or more (in your own monetary measure) on a single spirit/alcohol?

 

Recipe:

2 oz gin
1/2 oz maraschino liqueur
1/4 oz lemon juice
