This week on The Speakeasy, Damon brings on Natasha David who talks about how she got into the bar industry, from her humble beginnings as a cocktail waitress to restaurant manager to eventually a Co-Owner and Head Bartender of Nitecap in the Lower East Side. Natasha discusses her specific approach to making amazing drinks that happen to have low alcohol content. She goes on to explain that patrons should be able to taste many profiles in cocktails without quickly feeling the effects of the alcohol. Damon and Natasha talk about drinks throughout the city and how the popularity of well-crafted cocktails have changed in the past few years. This program was sponsored by Michter's .
