11 Baltimore Bars Serving Up Delicious Fall Cocktails

When fall descends on the city there’s the beauty of multi-colored leaves and the noticeable increase in the wearing of the purple. There’s also, typically, the invocation of the pumpkin and all associated spices, but this year’s local cocktails invoke fall in a decidedly different way. Some of the bars were even gracious enough to give us their recipes so you folks can make them at home!
