Moonlight is a fantastic variation on the classic Aviation cocktail. This version of the cocktail, where Triple Sec is used instead of maraschino, was created by Gary Regan. His change made the already citrusy cocktail even more citrusy.


  • Gin – 60 ml
  • Triple Sec – 30 ml
  • Violet liqueur – 20 ml
  • Lime juice – 10 ml
  • Lemon juice – 10 ml


Fill a shaker with ice and pour in the specified amounts of ingredients. You can use a jigger or kitchen measuring cup to measure the exact amounts. Shake the ingredients well and strain them into a previously chilled glass (without ice) using a bartender’s strainer. Garnish the prepared cocktail with an orange twist. Enjoy!
