When temperatures in Phoenix are lower than they are in Anchorage, Alaska - you know it's time for a drink. Fortunately, these three Phoenix based bars are serving up drinks both hot and heavy - perfect for the over 21 in need of a solution to the under 21 (well, it feels that way) weather.

To add further flair, the whole drink is steamed to 150 degrees and served in a Keoke coffee mug. Visit the District online for more information.
