The art of making cocktails is often an experience of inexact science that does not travel a linear path. What began as a recipe for a straight-forward Aviator-style cocktail has morphed over several iterations to become a refreshing, balanced long drink. Built on the backbone of the citrus forward Giniferous Gin and the floral-driven Subrosa Liqueur, The Aviatrix trades in cloying maraschino liqueur flavors for the refreshingly tart nature of the in-house made Floral shrub, aka drinking vinegar.
