Pumpkin Buttercup, Arguello
This is the perfect bridge between the crisp days of autumn and the frigid winter months. Pumpkin butter is served warm with Cannella Cinnamon Cordial and ​​h​​​ouse made whipped cream topped with toasted pumpkin seeds. Enjoy a mug while nestled with your beloved under a wool blanket at Arguello's patio fire pit.

Chufa Milk Punch, The Commissary
If the festive flavor of the holidays could be reduced to its delicious essence, it might be this cocktail from Traci Des Jardins' Spanish-influenced restaurant, The Commissary. Brandy, rum, chufa milk, and cinnamon blend into a frothy mix of good cheer. Abajo!

Mulled Cider, TRANSIT
This wholesome "warm me up" is the perfect reward after a brisk winter hike on the Presidio's trails. Apple and cinnamon never tasted so good!

Drunken Earl, Presidio Social Club (PSC)
Get warm and toasty with Presidio Social Club's take on a hot toddy. The Drunken Earl consists of Wild Turkey Rye, Drambuie, and Earl Grey tea. It's served in a footed mug with cream on the side. Leave it to PSC to give a new twist to a classic – this is ​cozy in a cup.

Caveat Emptor, Sessions at the Presidio
This cocktail is seriously comforting! Sessions at the Presidio's Caveat Emptor is made with Smith & Cross rum, St. George Spiced Pear Liqueur, honey, cream, and cinnamon. Let the drinker beware, this cocktail is so delicious you may find yourself ordering another.
