2 oz Gin
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
1⁄2 oz Chambord

Combine with ice, shake, and strain.


Variation on an Aviation that uses Jackson Hole Still Works Absaroka gin, named after the Absaroka mountains in Wyoming and has a distinctive cinnamon and spice flavor and Chambord in place of creme de violet. I'm sure it would taste great with a more traditional gin as well. Actually made it for the first time during winter, and it was great.
