Such a quick and easy cocktail, the Mezcal Aviation is a great choice to impress those who appreciate spirit-forward cocktails. Now, this version is a smoky spin on the traditional Aviation which uses gin, maraschino liqueur and crème de violette.
Although the classic Aviation is untouchable, the collision of smoky, sweet, and tangy citrus in this variation is lux and sophisticated. The beautiful crème de violette offers a gorgeous, hazy violet shade, as well as floral sweetness. The brandied cherry garnish yields light brandy notes rounding out the stunning sipper.
