The Aviation

The Aviation
Hotel bartender Hugo Ensslin is credited with the variation on the gin sour that we know as the Aviation. The tome that it appeared in: "Recipes for Mixed Drinks" was among the last major cocktail recipe guides published before prohibition.The recipe entailed therein endured a long period for which one of the primary flavoring ingredients: Creme De Violette was unavailable, perhaps in part due to a typo by Harry Craddock in his 1930 cocktail book. In either case, the Aviation is a remarkable cocktail. Unique color, great taste and a real wow drink that showcases contemporary gin.
