We’ve been serving up our coffee at the illustrious Husk Nashville since the Charleston, SC restaurant concept was brought to Music City in 2014. (You can basically see Husk from our downtown location; it’s only about a block away. We’re thrilled to have our pals so close!)

When we heard that bar manager Adam Morgan had crafted his take on the omnipresent espresso martini using our coffee, we just had to share the recipe with you. We love it because it’s creative and unique, but still manages to be a crowd pleaser.

(P.S. Adam also landed this beaut in Imbibe Magazine, which is pretty dang neat.)
