We have a dreary weekend ahead of us here in L.A., and your happy hour cocktail should warm your bones in preparation.

Culver City's Oldfield's Liquor Room uses seasonal fall flavors in their Tolstoy cocktail, crafted by Feisser Cardenas. Muddled cloves, vodka, Fernet Jelinek, fresh squeezed orange juice, and Farlernum are warmed and then served up with a cinnamon stick. With all those mulling spices, you can consider it a liquid dose of autumn, almost like an apple pie in a glass, but with less sugar.

Of course, you could always stay in and enjoy some mulled wine by the fireplace, too. Here's a great recipe if you prefer your happy hour to be held at home.
