Drink of the Week: Aviation Cocktail

Drink of the Week: Aviation Cocktail

A classic concoction from the early 20th century, this crisp cocktail may inspire visions of a smoldering stud in mirrored aviator glasses and leather bomber jacket eyeing you from across the bar. No? Maybe that’s just us. Regardless of the fantasies it may produce, this drink features maraschino liqueur, which offers a subtle bitter almond flavor thanks to its crushed cherry pits. Enjoy, but don’t drink and fly.

– 1.25 fl oz Tanqueray No. Ten Gin
– 0.25 fl oz Maraschino Liqueur
– 0.25 fl oz Lemon Juice

Pour each ingredient into a mixing glass. Shake with ice in a Boston shaker. Strain into a pre-chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon peel.
