Refreshing and floral, this highball sings with 95-105 proof whiskies with a floral nose and citrus flavors. This worked well with Old Forester 100, but also found it really worked with a Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit single barrel pick and an Early Times Bottled in Bond selection.
** Lavender simple: Brew 2 tablespoons of lavender with 1 cup of water. Steep and let cool. Strain, add 1 cup of sugar and stir until combined. Store in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. Great in homemade lemonade, any whiskey sour, added to a champagne cocktail/mimosa, mixed in a refreshing mule or in added to a vodka tonic.
