How is the Aviation Cocktail traditionally made?
The Aviation cocktail is a classic drink that dates back to the early 1900s. Traditionally, it’s made with gin, maraschino liqueur, crème de violette, and lemon juice. The result is a refreshing and floral cocktail that has become a staple in many bars across the world.
The gin used in an Aviation cocktail is typically London Dry Gin or Plymouth Gin. Maraschino liqueur adds sweetness while also providing a subtle nutty flavor. Crème de violette contributes to the light blue hue of the drink while also adding hints of floral notes.
To make this iconic cocktail, you’ll need to shake all ingredients together with ice and strain into a chilled glass. The traditional garnish for an Aviation Cocktail is a cherry or lemon twist.
Over time, variations of this classic recipe have emerged – some using different types of spirits like tequila instead of gin. But no matter how you choose to make your Aviation Cocktail, its timeless flavors will always leave you wanting more!
Aviation Cocktail made with Tequila
Tequila is an excellent substitution for gin in a traditional Aviation Cocktail as it still provides that floral note without being overpowering. Additionally, the agave flavor pairs perfectly with the other ingredients.
To create this unique twist on the classic cocktail, simply replace the gin with your favorite tequila. We recommend using a high-quality Tequila Cristalino for its smoothness and versatility in cocktails.
When using Tequila Avión Reserva Cristalino in your Aviation Cocktail recipe, you’ll notice how well it blends with the other ingredients while still maintaining its distinct flavor profile. You can expect notes of vanilla and caramel along with hints of oak from aging.
Switching out gin for tequila allows for greater experimentation within cocktail-making while still keeping that beloved floral taste of an Aviation Cocktail intact. Give it a try at home!
Why is Tequila Avión Reserva Cristalino the best for a Pure Aviation Cocktail?
Tequila is a versatile spirit that has been used in making cocktails for decades. However, not all tequilas are created equal when it comes to mixing them in cocktails. This is where Tequila Reserva Cristalino comes into play, especially when it comes to the Pure Aviation cocktail.
Tequila Avión Reserva Cristalino is a type of tequila that undergoes an additional filtration process after aging to remove its color and impurities while still maintaining its smoothness and complexity. This makes it perfect for creating clear cocktails like the Pure Aviation.
The natural sweetness and vanilla notes complement the other ingredients in the cocktail, such as Maraschino Liqueur and Crème de Violette. It also adds depth to the drink without overpowering other flavors.
If you want to elevate your Pure Aviation game, using this type of tequila will make all the difference by imparting unique flavors while keeping things smooth and balanced. So why not give it a try next time you’re making this classic aviation cocktail at home?
