First Class W.A.S.P. from Paramour in San Antonio.

Imbibing sky-high just got a bit easier thanks to San Antonio, Texas' rustically industrial Paramour, the city's first rooftop lounge newly installed as of this past fall. Right off the bat, the bar is already making waves, with guests dropping in for 10-month barrel-aged cocktails and seasonal frozen elixirs, too. Below, barman Christopher Ware organizes a user-friendly, warming combination of dark spirits plus sherry and chocolate.
