I swear I have had this idea for a 1920’s Aviation Cocktail-inspired ice cream/sorbet for ages, long before the Gatsby movie hype. I have attempted to make this ice cream 3 times this week, tweaking the recipe until I arrived at this version here, which is is basically a Juniper Ice Cream with lemon, gin, violet and maraschino flavors. The liquors I used were Bombay Sapphire Gin and Rothman & Winter: Creme de Violette,  and because I couldn’t bring myself to spend $18- $25 on a jar of (addictive) Luxardo Maraschino Cherries I decided to make my own following this homemade Maraschino Cherry recipe (#5).

Inspired by the Bee’s Knees cocktail, which is Lemon Juice, Honey and Gin. I added a bit of lavender to give it a Provençal twist. This recipe is like a boozy version of the Lemon-Lavender Ice Cream recipe. P.S. “The Bee’s Knees” is also one of my dog's several silly nicknames. eg, "Well, aren’t YOU the Bee’s Knees?"

*This recipe makes approx. 1 pint (half quart) of sorbet. If I were to make this again, I would use cheaper rum, fresh juices instead of the concentrates, and much less rum extract.
