Cocktail Recipe: Kentucky Bubble Bath

Photo: Plan Check

While the ancient Romans used lavender water for their baths, Southern Californians put it in their cocktails. This concoction comes from the bar of Los Angeles-based chain Plan Check. We like that the lavender-infused water is nicely balanced with rye and Italian bitters. It's a clean, refreshing cocktail that will still pack a punch!
