PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- Jan. 11 marks National Hot Toddy Day and since it's both the height of the flu season, as well as the start of winter's frigid grip, it seems there's no better time for this classic chest-warming libation.
Peekskill restaurants think so, too, and in the spirit of the season are offering the following hot toddys.
Division Street Toddy : There's nothing like dark rum, especially on a cold night, paired with sugar, pomegranate raspberry tea, ginger, honey and lemon to warm you from the inside out. Sip and Savor: 26 N. Division St., (914) 739-6380, www.divisionstreetgrill.com/ .
Gleason's Toddy: Jameson Irish Whiskey makes it all go down smoother. Paired with honey, organic free trade black tea, and a lemon wedge, you may need another round. Sip and Savor : 911 South St., (914) 402-1950, www.gleasonspeekskill.com/ .
Hudson Room Toddy: Made with chamomile tea, New York State bourbon, ginger-infused maple syrup and fresh orange, this version helps banish the winter blues. Sip and Savor: 23 S. Division St. (914) 788-3663, www.hudsonroom.com/ .
