This variation on the classic Aviation cocktail highlights all the best parts of summer stone fruits. It has a bit of pucker, but still has the honeyed sweet taste of apricots.

- 1 barspoon Maraschino
- 1/2 ounce apricot liqueur
- 1/4 ounce freshly squeezed juice from 1 lemon
- Garnish: Lemon twist
