We're still hot on Drillaud French Liqueur. Why? The lineup offers great flavors at a huge savings compared to more famous brands, what with their advertising budgets and well-paid spokespeople and corporate jets and all.

  2 oz Hendrick's Gin 1/2 oz lemon juice 1/2 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur 1/2 oz Drillaud Creme de Violette      Shake ingredients with ice, strain into chilled cocktail glass. Drop in two Luxardo Marasche Cherries.
  You can use any gin for this recipe, but we especially love the way the cucumber, rose pedal, and other botanicals in Hendrick's work so well with the round, floral Drillaud Violette. The inclusion of Creme de Violette gives you a more authentic, classic Aviation. We're excited to offer the usually tough-to-get liqueur that used to be the cornerstone of this cocktail. The Luxardo Marashe cherries don't give the same cheery bright red glow that regular marashino cherries do, but once you taste one you will know why we recommend them. Quite seriously, they are the best preserved cherries on the planet. People will notice them and want them. That's why you should have two. Cheers to Danny Culen for the inspiration for this recipe.
