Aviation Cocktail

makes 1 drink

The name of this feisty Depression-era cocktail is supposedly linked to air travel of the time -- a risky venture not for the faint of heart.

This recipe comes from Rob Chirico's Hair of the Dog. For more of Rob's great cocktails, buy his Field Guide to Cocktails.


1 1/2 dry ounces gin
3/4 ounce maraschino liqueur
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 dash crème de violette (optional)
1 cherry (optional)


prep: 5 minutes
total: 5 minutes


cocktail shaker
cocktail glass


Shake all ingredients well with ice and strain into cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry if desired.
