Aviation Cocktail at Sweet Grass 

In the cocktail world, there are two schools of thought on the Aviation. Some mixologists consider the original Aviation to be made with Crème de Violette, gin, and lemon juice. For others, this is a Blue Moon. By whatever name, I call it thirst-quenching. The bartenders at Sweet Grass have a deft hand when it comes to this cocktail. The Crème de Violette is the star of the show with its vibrant true purple color and heady aroma of fresh violet. At first glance, one might expect this unique liqueur to taste perfumey. But it does not. Sweet Grass' Aviation has a perfect balance of acidity, floral sweetness, and intoxicating aromatics.

Sweet Grass, 937 S. Cooper (278-0278)
