Bottom's up with new fall cocktails at The Oakland

Posted By on Thu, Sep 3, 2015 at 7:53 PM

Now that fall is just around the corner, the fine folks at The Oakland Art Novelty Company thought it would be a good idea to spruce up their cocktail menu with four additions. Let's just be clear, you won't be seeing any pumpkin-spiced anything on the these new concoctions... And that's a good thing. Instead, what you'll encounter is lots of use of ginger (in beer, candy and syrup-form), spices like cinnamon and coriander and other ingredients that hearken the cooler months, when you'd you rather be sitting next to a bonfire and taking in the aroma of burnt leaves.

The Oakland's own Chas Williams shared with us some eye candy of the cocktails. They look almost good enough to drink.
