Creators of this cocktail and co-owners at The Roosevelt Room in Austin, Texas, Justin Lavenue and Dennis Gobis have solidified the cocktail bar as Austin’s definitive destination for excellence in craft cocktails and service.

The bar was named TimeOut Austin’s 2017 “Bar of the Year” and included in Food & Wine’s “Best Cocktail Bars in the U.S.”
