Romance the pants off your date with this showstopper of a cocktail.
Happy Valentine’s Day gin lovers! Roses are red, violets are blue, and so is this stunning Aviation cocktail.
This cocktail is a real showstopper, and this classic mixes floral and fragrant violet with maraschino. The match of these with the gin botanicals from Hidden Curiosities gin, along with the incredible colour, makes this one a firm favourite at my table.
It's very simple to make, so it's the perfect way to impress your date this Valentine's weekend.
• 60ml Hidden Curiosities Gin
• 10ml Bitter Truth Violet Liqueur
• 10ml Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
• 30ml Fresh Lemon Juice
• Maraschino Cherry to garnish
Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and vigorously wet shake together with plenty of ice for 30 seconds. Fine strain into a chilled Coupe or Nick & Nora glass, and garnish with a maraschino cherry.
This impressive looking cocktail is both refreshingly delicious and simple to make.
