Sippin’ Around San Antonio With a Dirty Hot Chocolate, Matcha Latte and More

sippin' around san antonio

I’m kicking off the weekend with a list of hot spots in San Antonio to give you all those warm and fuzzies. We’ve been spoiled by these 70+ degree days lately, but have you checked the forecast? The temps next week look to be dropping and chilly nights are coming. It’s going to be the perfect weather for strolls through the Pearl and walks along the river popping through some of my favorite hot spots for a delectable winter sip. Plus the San Antonio twinkling lights are my favorite reason to end your days in the heart of San Antonio.
