Pittsburgh City Paper Booze Battles: Senti vs. Pizzaiolo Primo

We try out lavender and lemon cocktails

Each week, we order the same cocktail at two different bars for a friendly head-to-head battle. Go to the bars, taste both drinks and tell us what you like about each by tagging @pghcitypaper on Twitter or Instagram and using #CPBoozeBattles. If you want to be a part of Booze Battles, send an email to food-and-beverage writer Celine Roberts, at celine@pghcitypaper.com.

Drink: Lemon Lavender Snapback

Ingredients: Boyd & Blair vodka, lavender, limoncello, soda

Our take: The limoncello gives this drink a very velvety texture along with bright citrus notes. Lavender makes an appearance on the nose, but is subtle in taste. The herbaceousness adds depth to an otherwise clean profile.

Drink: Lavanda

Ingredients: Barrel-aged gin, lavender, grapefruit, lemon

Our take: The gin, mellowed by barrel aging, lends a few herbal notes, but exists mostly in the background of this light, floral drink. Lavender and lemon add dryness.
