Review:

Tangy gin-laced lemon sourness with aromatic maraschino - too many of these and you really will be flying.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Book:
"AVIATION COCKTAIL.
1/3 Lemon juice.
2/3 Dry Gin.
2 Dashes Maraschino.
Shake well and strain into chilled glass.
"
