Aviation Gin & Tonic From Bobby Gin

Aviation Gin & Tonic

The classic Aviation refreshed as a G&T.

At Bobby Gin in Barcelona, Alberto Pizarro and his team offer more than a dozen G&T variations that accent the mixtures with touches of fruit, herbs, bitters, and spices. In this version, floral bitters and a spray of lemon zest nod toward the classic Aviation cocktail.


  • 2 oz. gin (Bobby Gin uses Aviation)
  • 6 oz. chilled tonic water (Pizarro recommends Schweppes or Fever-Tree)
  • 2 dashes lavender bitters
  • Glass:large goblet
  • Garnish:large lemon twist


Fill the glass with ice cubes and add the gin and bitters. Slowly add chilled tonic, then twist a lemon peel over the drink and use as garnish.
