The Aviation is one of those cocktail recipes that often gets overlooked for home cocktail-making, since it requires a couple of ingredients that you won't use all that often. Crème de Violette just isn't used in that many recipes, so to buy a whole bottle just to make a great Aviation once in awhile could be a deterrent.
Never fear, our version of the Aviation is just as delicious and so much more accessible to make! Crescent Simples Blueberry Lavender Simple Syrup comes to the rescue with all the fragrant florals you need to make a good gin sing. And in our opinion, the naturally rosy hue this cocktail produces is even more appealing than the near-electric blue of the original.
Cheers to enjoying this light and bright cocktail classic at home!
