Aviation Cocktail

This long forgotten classic has recently seen a hearty return, due partially to one of its core ingredients, Maraschino liqueur also being more available. The Aviation is often the first obscure drink that makes its way onto the cocktail menu of a bar that is trying to acquaint it's customers with pre-prohibition cocktails.
