The Dupont Circle hotel bar’s fall menu features a slew of seasonal cocktails including one for teetotalers. If you’re in an apple mood, try the Apple Mule (Apple Smirnoff, Triple Sec, fresh lime juice, cranberry juice, agave) or the Warm Apple Pie (Applejack Brandy, apple juice, gingerbread syrup, hot water) - if you’re ready to jump on the pumpkin bandwagon, the Pumpkin Spiced is right up your alley: Kahlua, pumpkin spiced liqueur, Butterscotch Schnapps, and cream.

These fall offerings will be available through December. (1001 Pennsylvania Ave, NW; 202-626-0015)
