Sunday Funday: Austin’s French 77 Cocktail
‘Tis the season to be someone else! Halloween is just days away, so why not embrace a different identity? Today, let’s be French! Oui oui. Let’s start with this awesome cocktail from pre-Prohibition lounge Péché, located in downtown Austin, TX. Péché is a French-inspired old world bar and restaurant with more than 50 spirits lining their wooden walls. It’s tasty and will make you feel like a classy French woman (with or without the French maid costume!).

0.5 oz simple syrup
