Aviation Cocktail

Pin It

The Aviation cocktail uses a touch of one of the lesser known and harder to find liqueurs in the world: creme de violette. It’s just what it sounds like – a liqueur that tastes like violets.

Aviation Cocktail recipe - Gin, Creme de Violette, Maraschino Liqueur, Lemon Juice

This drink recipe combines that touch of violet flavor with a double dose of gin, a good amount of lemon juice and a touch of maraschino liqueur. The overall flavor is citrus with notes of herbs and flowers and that bit of cherry to bring it all together.


  • 3 ounces gin
  • 1 1/2 ounces lemon juice
  • 1/4 ounce creme de violette
  • 1/4 maraschino liqueur

Pour ingredients into a martini glass and stir.
