Sugar Free Aviation Cocktail

It was only a matter of time before the Sugar Free Aviation Cocktail was mixed after we made our Sugar Free Maraschino Liqueur!

The Sugar Free Aviation Cocktail is an old one that dates back to 1916, where it was first published in Recipes for Mixed Drinks, by Hugo Ensslin.  It was also later published in the Savoy Cocktail Book, where it inexplicably omits the (IMHO) very necessary Creme de Violette.  It’s also rumored that it was named because it’s color resembles that of the sky.

Sugar Free Maraschino Liqueur

In any home bar, one necessity that has managed to elude us thus far is the Sugar Free Marachino Liqueur.  Well, it has taken some considerable research and time, but the MDR Labs have finally conquered this essential liqueur for any bar.

Our research really specifies marasca cherry pits, which are bitter, as opposed to the standard grocery store cherries and are used during the distillation phase in order to extract some of those flavors.  But finding dried cherry pits is quite an ordeal and honestly, not one that we’ve been able to successfully complete.
