Stay Warm in Baltimore This Winter With These Hot & Spiced Cocktails

by Jennifer Waldera on Nov 27, 2018 in Roundups

 
When the weather gets cooler, it’s easy to just rely on some straight bourbon or a hearty red, but there a few spots in Baltimore heating things up with spiced or heated cocktails that warm you from the inside out.
 
If anyone in town knows how to craft a seasonal cocktail, it’s Brendan Dorr at B&O. While the Brasserie is housed at the classy Hotel Monaco, the bar has anything but a hotel feel. Dining and drinking here is as authentic a downtown Baltimore experience as you can find. Dorr is currently shaking and stirring several spiced concoctions for the chilly season.
