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, and more. In Austin, you can find hot Irish coffees from the Tigress Pub, minty boozy hot chocolates from Little Brother, spiked coffees from Cosmic Coffee, and hot toddies galore.

For specific drinks to-go, check out Eater’s cocktail heatmap and guides to margaritas, frozen cocktails, beers, wines, and Jell-O shots.

Keep in mind that, in accordance with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission guidelines, purchases of sealed mixed drinks and cocktail kits must be accompanied with food.

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.

A number of Austin restaurants and bars have resumed dine-in service. That level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the City of Austin website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.
