A LITTLE SOMETHING BLUE
Our final cocktail rings feature our favorite colored stone: blue sapphire! These stunning rings are deep and moody — midnight blues surrounded by twinkly diamonds. We decided to challenge another one of our absolute favorite restaurants, our neighbors a few doors down at Sotto. Sotto crafted a classic cocktail using a very traditional recipe, rather than a riff or variation. They opted for the Aviation, its sophisticated gray-blue color making it the perfect comp- lement to the rich marine and navy shades of the classic blue sapphire. While the color is derived from French creme de violette, it is supported and given depth by Italian Luxardo maraschino liqueur.
THE AVIATION A traditional recipe.
Ingredients: 1.5 oz Bombay London dry gin 1 oz Rothman’s creme de violette .5 oz lemon juice .5 Luxardo maraschino liqueur Garnished with a single Luxardo maraschino cherry
