I take it all back about the Aviation

A perfect ashy-purple drink.
It's not technically an Aviation, but the Violetta at the Ashland Springs Hotel in Ashland, Oregon is very close. When I saw it on the menu I could barely contain my excitement given that, per the comments on my recent post, I clearly hadn't experienced a proper Aviation.

Right you all were. The Violetta contains Aviation gin (made in Portland), Deviation dessert wine (in place of maraschino liqueur), creme de violette, and lemon juice. The bartender drops in a tiny viola and though the color is less lavender than sooty, it's exquisitely beautiful. It is also delicious -- delicate and aromatic. The Violetta/Aviation makes a Negroni, my favorite cocktail of recent months, taste coarse and brassy. I think it's a good sign that I no longer like Manhattans (at all!) and that I may now be transitioning from Negronis to something daintier. Soon, I'll be a white wine spritzer drinker, and, after that, maybe just spritzer. A girl can dream.
All hotel lobbies should look like this.
Today we see plays. Isabel loves plays and while I do not love plays, I do love Isabel.


  1. Jennifer, you totally inspired me! Not long ago I shot down to DC for a one-day business trip, and at dinner I ended up at this gorgeous restaurant that specialized in speakeasy-era cocktails. First on the menu? Aviation. Your blog post popped up in my head and I ordered it. It was totally divine. I'm glad you tried it again and were won over, because I was too. Cheers.

  2. I am not a big play person but I think I could be happy at a Shakespeare festival especially an outdoor one if only for the picnic opportunities....must buy creme de violette :)

  3. I have great memories of seeing plays in Ashland. Enjoy yourself!

  4. If this trajectory toward white wine spritzers continues, you'll have to rename the blog "The Can't-Quite-Get-a-Buzz-On Baker"...

  5. I know a great aviation accident attorney, but I can see we're talking about a different aviation here! Hope you had a great time.
