Setting Austin’s mild winter aside, the city does occasionally encounter cold fronts and freezing rain, so it’s best to warm up with a hot cocktail. The possibilities are wonderful, with comforting toasty drinks like hot toddies, spiked chocolates, hot buttered rums, and more.

As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each bar/restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the bar/restaurant themselves.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
