We love Instagram (follow us, pls?), but we can’t be everywhere at once. Each week, we’re going to share the best photos of drinks, bars, bottles—basically everything boozy—that Instagram has to offer. This week, salute your pets with a drink, toast to the weekend and learn all about the classic Aviation. Want your ‘gram to show up on Liquor.com? Tag your photos with #liquorgram and you might see yourself in our next roundup.

The Aviation The original recipe for The Aviation was first published in Hugo Ensslin’s ‘Recipes for Mixed Drinks’ in 1916. Though the drink was well received by both bartenders and bar-goers, it didn’t gain any real popularity until modern cocktail bars started including it on their menus again in the mid 2000’s. The combination of lemon citrus and sweet cherry liqueur is complimented by the floral nose and cloudy hue of the Crème de Violette. The resulting glass is proof that The Aviation is one of history’s greatest classic cocktails. It’s one of our favorites and we think it could be one of yours, too. Cheers! Recipe
