Our Producer, Brittany Lesoon’s top Austin pick is Honey Moon Spirit Lounge.
It’s dangerously delicious! It’s a classic Italian Espresso martini that is not too sweet, it’s perfect. They make it with a house-made almond orgeat and you can taste the quality espresso in every sip. It’s absolutely a must-try!
