Lunar Mare

It doesn't take a rocket scientist (sorry, Stiff) to notice that I like a good Aviation now and again. So far, the Lounge only has one drink that has multiple versions listed and that is the aforesaid Aviation. The main problem, however, with the Aviation is that it is often too sour in its classic form, so I decided to manipulate the proportions a bit and add chocolate. The result is a sweeter, deeper version of its cousin; if you add grapefruit instead of the lemon, you have a more sophisticated version of the 1969 Moonwalk. In that vein, then, we decided to call this drink the Lunar Mare.

Lunar Mare
Holly's Originals

1 ounce gin
1 ounce parfait amour
1/2 ounce maraschino
1/2 ounce white crème de cacao
Squeeze of lemon or grapefruit

Combine all into an ice-filled shaker and shake. Strain straight up in a coupe or cocktail glass.
