     On February 26, 2020, hundreds of guests gathered at New York City's Gotham Hall for the 2020 "Sophisticated Weddings" Release Party. (stay tuned for photo and video coverage of the event) As partiers arrived and checked in they were met with the evening's signature drink. For this auspicious occasion the venue invented L'AVIATION (pictured above and below).

     One of the sponsors for the Release Party was Ryan Reynolds' Aviation Gin. This became the foundation of L'AVIATION. Here are the ingredients and preparation:

INGREDIENTS: 1.5 oz Aviation Gin .5 oz Liqueur de Violette .5 oz Cherry liqueur .5 oz of Fresh Lemon Juice Topped with Prosecco
