Jasmine Aviation

Making a Jasmine Aviation is pretty easy. Pour 125ml of chilled Jasmine Aviation into a martini glass or use your shaker with ice, garnish with an lemon zest.

The original Aviation cocktail was first published in Hugo R. Ensslin's 1916 Recipes for Mixed Drinks and made great use of Alps produced liqueur Crème de Violet, the colour of which is alluded to in the drink's very name. Harry Craddock later printed the recipe in his 1930 publication, Savoy Cocktail Book.

The Aviation cocktail is a classic cocktail made with gin, maraschino liqueur, crème de violette, and lemon juice. It is served straight up, in a cocktail glass.The Aviation was created by Hugo Ensslin, head bartender at the Hotel Wallick in New York, in the early twentieth century. 

Wynand Fockink recipe is a co-creation with Otenba (not a gin. nor it is genever) and several tinctures (jasmine) and esprits. The violettes gives the cocktail its pale purple color.

Cheers!
