Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a real maraschino cherry.


that sounds like a really ginny aviation

i up the creme de violet to .5
down the gin to 1.5oz

btw if you like it a touch sweeter esp if you're using fresh lemons

give the maraska maraschino a shot

I used to do .75 oz lemon juice, but found it too lemony. Will have to try the Maraska brand when I run out of Luxardo.
Ok just tried Death & Co's variation of the Aviation...I think I like it the best:

2 oz Plymouth gin
0.75 Lemon juice
0.5 oz Luxardo maraschino liquor
0.25 oz Simply syrup
0.25 oz 0.5 teaspoon Creme de Violet -EDIT-

I think the touch of simple syrup really makes the cocktail. Probably why G-man recommended the sweeter Maraska brand.

Heading back to Puerto Vallarta in a couple weeks. Smile This is one of my favorite fresh drinks down there. There are mango trees everywhere.

I recommend muddling in a few slices of jalapeno and strain - it gives a nice kick.
I don't know if this has been made before, but if not, I'm claiming it. I call it a---

Midnight Manhattan (TM)
1 part Sweet Vermouth (I use Cocchi)
3 parts Rittenhouse Rye
3 t. Jack Rudy dark Bourbon cocktail cherry juice
2 Jack Rudy dark Bourbon cocktail cherries


If you haven't tried Jack Rudy cherries, they are the bomb!
Boulevardier

1.5 oz Buffalo Trace bourbon
1 oz Campari
1 oz Dolin Rouge vermouth

- EDIT - Forgot to add the instructions

Combine all in an iced filled Yarai. Stir till chilled and pour into an Old Fashioned glass with a large ice cube.

Domaine de Canton is a ginger liqueur. It's particularly good for making an Asian Pear Martini - the chicks dig it Smile

It's a great drink TT. Problem is black strap rum is not easy to find. I mine this way:

1.5 oz Cruzan Black Strap rum
1.5 oz Pineapple juice
0.75 oz Campari
0.5 oz Lime juice
0.5 oz Simple syrup

Shake and strain into iced filled glass.

if you do have black strap rum, you can up the campari

if you just have aged dark rum like i do, I really recommend lowering the campari to .5 instead of .75.

The traditional recipe does have simple syrup, but i typically have my cocktails more boozy so i left it out and replaced it with the boozier malibu.

but it is quite an excellent cocktail.
