The Aviation is a celebrated cocktail created by Hugo Ensslin, appearing in his 1916 book Recipes for Mixed Drinks. When created properly it is the colour of a pale highland winters sky. Many suggest it is best drunk on a spring day, we suggest this cocktail can be enjoyed anytime. This is a strong drink.
