Guests looking to embrace the cold-weather in style can head to Penn Quarter luxe restaurant Dirty Habit, where Beverage Manager Drew Hairston crafted two warm-cocktails to enjoy outside the patio next to one of Dirty Habit’s striking fire pits. Blanket throws are also available at the outdoor patio.

Hairston’s hot gin punch is made with Monkey 47 Schwarzwald gin, cardamom, bouquet garni and tinged with blood orange. The Dirty Habit Tom & Jerry is another sweet cocktail to try out, and made with Ron Zacapa 23, Pierre Ferrand VSOP cognac, oat milk, chestnut and gingerbread.

Hairston’s two cocktails are $14 and can also be enjoyed indoors at the Footed Bar and Glass House Bar. Dirty Habit’s patio welcomes guests on a first-come, first-served basis. Happy hour on the patio may be enjoyed every Monday through Friday from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM.
