2 oz gin
.75 oz lemon juice
.5 Luxardo Maraschino
2 squeezes Cocktailpunk Colorado Lavender bitters

Shake, pour into a chilled coupe, and float an additional squeeze of Lavender bitters.

It has been said that the best Aviation is the one with the least Crème de Violette, and this riff takes this sentiment to the extreme. The Lavender bitters add just the right floral note.
