Baby, it's cold outside. It may only be early October, but current forecasts show temperatures aren't likely to break 80 degrees again in 2013. Leaves are falling, pumpkins sit on porches waiting for their inevitable smashing -- it's clear fall is here to stay. So what better way to settle in than a nice, warming cocktail? We've assembled a list of our favorite fall cocktails in St. Louis, all guaranteed to give you that warm feeling in your gullet. Enjoy!

The bar: Water Street Cafe and Cocktail Bar (7268 Manchester Road, Maplewood; 314-646-8355)

The drink: "Silver Cloud"

The key to Water Street's "Silver Cloud" is the simple garnish of a Serrano pepper -- each sip combines fiery aroma with the smooth taste of Scotch, amaro, honey syrup, lemon and, the crucial final piece, egg white. As owner and drink creator Gabe Kveton explains, there's definitely a spicy intensity, "but the egg white balances it out and cuts into the heat." Served in a devilish, red-tinted cocktail glass, the "Silver Cloud" is wonderfully warm and equally potent.
