The winter months conjure images of cool weather, hot food, and festive drinks. Perhaps the greatest part of the cold weather is the seasonal menus that come with them. Cookies and treats, variations of hot chocolate, and themed cocktails are all offerings that bars and restaurants create to put their patrons at ease as the weather drops. Here are some of our favorite cocktails in and around the Arts District this season.
