100 Proof (50% ABV)
Made with organic lavender grown in Palisade, on Colorado's Western Slope. Clear lavender notes sing out, with subtle undertones of ginger and citrus. 2.0 oz.
Cocktailpunk cocktail bitters are handmade in very small batches in Boulder, Colorado. Our bitters do not include any sugar, caramel, or added sweetener of any kind, nor is there any coloring, artificial or otherwise. We believe that bitters should be just that, bitter, and ours do not add any confusing sweetness. A great cocktail incorporates spirits with sweet, sour, and bitter components to achieve a harmonious balance, and Cocktailpunk bitters are designed do their part with great accuracy.
All our bitters are fabulous alone in cold sparkling water, and very useful for balancing often-too-sweet non-alcoholic cocktails.

It has been said that the best Aviation is the one with the least Crème de Violette, and this riff takes this sentiment to the extreme. The Lavender bitters add just the right floral note.
