"The Aviation has always been a cocktail that appeals to me— that beautiful color, that flavor profile, even the name! I got the request awhile ago, but creme de violette has proven difficult to find here in the Yoop. Thank goodness for friends that will hook you up! And for taste-testing wives! Now that I have it, I’ve been experimenting and have found that I really love the flavor of this liqueur. It reminds me of these violet candies my mom had when I was a kid and would sneak from the dish on the buffet table or from her purse. I didn’t like that the traditional recipe muted that flavor so much with the lemon, so this is my recipe. I’ll include the original, too.
