Maggiano’s Little Italy Aviation Cocktail
A Maggiano’s Little Italy Copycat Recipe
The Aviation cocktail, was created in the early 1900s when flying was brand new and terribly exciting. An Aviation is made with gin, maraschino liqueur, Crème de Violette – which gives the cocktail it’s pale sky-blue color – and lemon and is served straight up in a cocktail glass. Because of the scarceness of Crème de Violette in the 1930s, bartenders then and today occasionally omit the violet liqueur, calling for a mixture of gin, lemon juice and a couple dashes of maraschino. Maggiano’s Little Italy uses the original recipe.
