It's the pilot episode, so of course we had to go with an Aviation. (Get it? Pilot … aviation … we like to pun, you might as well know it from the get-go!) It also happens to be purple!
Click here for the original Aviation Cocktail recipe. Heather’s notes: a little less lemon juice, a little more Creme de Violette, and a fresh lemon peel would take this cocktail to new heights!
2 oz Gin
1⁄2 oz Maraschino Liquor
1⁄4 oz Crème de Violette or Crème Yvette
3⁄4 oz Fresh lemon juice
Combine all ingredients, shake over ice, pour into a coup, garnish as you wish and “take off”!
