I concur with the previous posters. This recipe may be delicious for all I know, but it's certainly *not* an Aviation. Gin, lemon, Luxardo, and usually also creme de violette (when it can be found).

SOOOOO WRONG! -- You ONLY use Maraschino liqueur (MARASKA is great!) AND you MUST use Creme de Violette! A little fresh squeezed lemon juice and ... VOILA!!!

Use a quality gin, the less costly stuff doesn't do the drink justice ...

NO NO NO. This is wrong. Look it up.
