Nicole Craven and Alexis Smith have created Après Hours, made with agave wine, a departure from the traditional espresso martini, made with vodka.

Après Hours' espresso martinis come in three flavors: classic, vanilla and salted caramel. They became available nearly nationwide on Aug. 5, 2022.

KRLDs Austin York spoke with the two about their inspiration for the drink, why they chose agave wine instead of vodka, and challenges they had in the industry.

Après Hours can be found in about two dozen Dallas-area retail stores like Pogo’s Wine & Spirits, Lucky’s Liquor, Buddy’s Booze and Uptown Liquor.

Each 12-ounce can is 240 calories. They're sold by the four-pack via retail for $13.99 to $14.99 or as a 12-pack online for $55, not including shipping.
