Raise a glass to the #snowmageddon

If you're anywhere on the East Coast right now, the only color you see is white. Blinding white. If your local liquor store is still open - mine is! - any one of these colorful cocktails is well worth the trek through the tundra for ingredients.

Personally, I've been enjoying the pale lavender deliciousness of the Aviation cocktail.  The creme de violette might be difficult to source - again, big ups to Pearson's - but it is essential.  It adds a floral hint that's a perfect balance to the nuttiness of the maraschino and the brightness of the lemon and gin.
