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.

Location Details Senti Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar
3473 Butler St
Lawrenceville
Pittsburgh, PA
412-586-4347

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.

Location Details Pizzaiolo Primo
8 Market Square
Downtown
Pittsburgh, PA
412-575-5858
Pizza and Italian

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.
