This cocktail was created at the Wallick Hotel in New York, at the beginning of the 20th century, to honor aviation. The architect was the bartender Hugo Ensslin, who added the violet liquor to give it that peculiar color. The original recipe has been transformed, increasing the amount of gin and reducing the lemon, in order to get a softer drink.
