    Three Local Cocktails to Warm You This Winter

    Baby, it’s cold outside. With temperatures dropping, I’m looking to warm up with a festive adult beverage. Our friends over at Bode, the beautiful boutique hotel off Lower Broadway, have three recipes to keep us festive and warm while the winter winds are whipping.

    Note from Bode: “Bode, the trendy, boutique hotel off Lower Broadway, is home to The Porch Market + Café, a modern dining destination with local beverages and bites. Coming in 2021, Bode will officially open Sidebar, a stylish new watering hole with craft cocktails, beers and an extensive wine selection.”
