Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Empress Aviation

December 12, 2022  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There,

Acording to liquor.com, "the Aviation is a classic gin cocktail dating back to the turn of the 20th century, and it first appeared in Huge Enslinn’s book “Recipes for Mixed Drinks” in 1916 while he was tending bar at New York City’s Hotel Wallick. In the ensuing decades, it was all but forgotten. That’s because one of the drink’s primary ingredients, crème de violette liqueur, disappeared from the market during the 1960s."  We got our hands on the crème de violette liqueur, and decided to use Empress Gin to up the purple hue of this delicious cocktail.  We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online!
