Booze Review – Aviation Cocktail


Let’s mix things up a bit and try a cocktail! Thanks to our friends at Esquire and The Twilight Lounge, I picked the Aviation Cocktail as my experiment for the evening. You can follow the links to their websites for a bit of Aviation Cocktail history. Here’s the Esquire recipe:

  • 2 ounces of Bombay Sapphire Gin
  • 2 teaspoons of Maraschino Liqueur
  • 3/4 ounce of fresh-squeezed lemon juice

Shake the gin, the Maraschino, and the fresh-squeezed lemon juice well with cracked ice, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass and serve ungarnished.

The Verdict

This is a really tasty drink! The Maraschino adds some sweetness, the lemon juice adds some tartness, and the Gin makes it a little bit herbal. The three ingredients work together to create a cocktail that is a great alternative to a Classic Margarita or a Classic Daiquiri (not that frozen daiquiri stuff).

Happy landings!
