The Aviation Cocktail is almost too pretty to drink!
Mr. Grey and I have jumped into this whole cocktail making thing head first. Searching for new cocktails, each one requiring several new bottles for our ever expanding bar. None of this 5 bottle bar, or even 9 bottle bar, I think we’re on the 30+ bottle bar plan! It’s such a fun journey though. Each new bottle of some mysterious liquor brings a new flavor to the table.
When I heard about The Aviation Cocktail and saw it’s lovely lavender color, I knew I had to make it. I’m a sucker for anything so elegant looking. It’s a super easy cocktail, the real challenge is finding Creme de Violette. But finally, I found it, one lone bottle sitting on the shelf and grabbed it. Even the bottle was elegant and art deco looking, just what you would expect from the key ingredient in a cocktail called The Aviation.
This was everything I hoped it would be. Elegant. Subtle. Delicious. Pretty to look at.
If you are looking to impress, you need look no further.
