Welcome to a cocktail that really lives up to its namesake. A gorgeous blue-violet color sets The Aviation No. 1 apart and hearkens to the skies that had recently been unlocked to manned flight when this cocktail was invented. Make this simply stunning cocktail and take your next get-together into the stratosphere.
