Created by Hugo Ensslin, head bartender at the Hotel Wallick in New York, in the early twentieth century. The first published recipe of The Aviation for the drink appeared in Ensslin’s 1916 Recipes for Mixed Drinks. Ensslin’s recipe called for El Bart gin, lemon juice, dashes maraschino liqueur and crème de violette, a violet liqueur which gives the cocktail a pale purple color

Harry Craddock’s influential Savoy Cocktail Book (1930) omitted the crème de violette, calling for a mixture of two-thirds dry gin, one-third lemon juice, and two dashes of maraschino. Many later bartenders have followed Craddock’s lead, leaving out the difficult-to-find violet liqueur.

My take on this classic goes like this includes Aviation Gin, Lemon juice, Maraschino and Cherry Liqueur


The Aviation è un invenzione di Hugo Ensslin. L’Head Bartender del Hotel Wallick di New York lo propone per la prima volta all’inizio del ventesimo secolo. La prima ricetta dell’Aviation appare nel ricettario di Ensslin del 1916 per “Mixed Drinks”. La ricetta prevedeva El Bart Gin, succo di limone, un pizzico di Maraschino e la “creme de violette”, un liquore di voletta che da il colore viola al cocktail.

Il noto libro di Harry Craddock ‘Savoy Cocktail Book’ omette dalla ricetta il liquore di violetta. Il nuovo The Aviation, quindi, prevede 2/3 di Gin, 1/3 di succo di limone e due spruzzi di Maraschino. Molti bartender hanno seguito questa ricetta, grazie anche alla difficolta di trovare il liquore di violetta.

Il nostro tocco su questo grande classico prevede Aviation Gin, Succo di limone, Maraschino e Liquore di ciliegia.
