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?"

*An adaptation of the Lemon Ice Cream recipe.
I have also made a version with Poppyseeds (add 1-2 TB at the churning stage) instead of Chocolate.

I bought my Food Grade Lavender Oil on Amazon.com. The white chocolate is Godiva’s White Chocolate with Vanilla Bean.
