The aroma hits you with a dose of sarsaparilla first before the orange peel which emphasizes the lavender note that follows. Slightly sweet as you taste, the juniper's pine comes out but isn't the star of the show. The finish is bittersweet with a cinnamony/minty fresh taste. Traditionalists may turn their noses up, but that just means more for us. Of course, an Aviation cocktails seems fitting, but feel free to use in other sours like a Pegu Club or a Bee's Knees cocktail.
