Aviation

Aviation cocktail with gin and creme de violette

This is, to our minds, one of the most perfect cocktails ever invented: delicate, balanced, mysterious, and beautiful. We prefer the recipe from Doug Ford at cold-glass.com. He advises that it should be made “small, very cold, and emphatically sour.” After trying it ourselves, we can’t help but agree.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Drop a stemless cherry into the glass, or garnish with a lemon twist.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
