A simpler version of the aviation that gives you an alternative use for that bottle of Creme Violette, I made many of these before committing to buying a bottle of maraschino (not the cherries) for the aviation. I use Creme Yvette (because I can find it) which has a noticeable berry flavor and a more purple color.
Shake vigorously over ice:
- 1 1/2 oz gin
- 1/2 oz creme violette
- 1/2 oz lemon juice
Pour into a cocktail glass. Garnish with three blueberries.
