Tis The Season For Fall Cocktail Specials | My Favorites in LA

One of my favorite parts of a new season is the cocktail specials that are created at different bars and restaurants! There's nothing more fun than a festive concoction to get you in the spirit of the chillier weather and changing leaves. Take a break from your daily PSL and indulge in some of my favorite cocktails found at some of my favorite spots in LA. And if you're from out of town, have no fear: Recipes are included! Cheers!
