RIVERTOWNS, N.Y. -- Timing is everything and with the height of the flu season upon us, coupled with January's below-normal temperatures, it seems the opportune moment to celebrate the chest-warming libation known as the hot toddy.

Jan. 11, in fact, marks National Hot Toddy Day. So, raisea glass in cheers at the following eateries where you'll find a variety of options for sipping and savoring.

Applejack Toddy: Cedar Street Grill, Dobbs Ferry: Laird's Applejack, local cider, honey cinnamon syrup and shaved nutmeg, elevate the classic toddy, adding additional heat and flavor to ward off the cold. Sip and Savor: 23 Cedar Street, (914) 674-0706,

A Mind of Winter, Harper's On Main, Dobbs Ferry: Mixologist Clark Moore is very serious about his cocktails and so his hot toddy, taken from a phrase from the Wallace Stevens poem, "The Snow Man," is a bit more aromatic than the norm. He said he wanted to create "something that reflects a sunny day in January when the purity of light is magnified by a fresh covering of snow." Ingredients include chamomile tea, Elderflower liqueur, Muscat Grappa, honey syrup and fresh lemon. Have a sip and judge for yourself. Sip and Savor: 92 Main St.,  (914) 693-2306,

The Hotty Toddy, Harvest on Hudson, Hastings-on-Hudson: A mixture of either bourbon, rye or Irish whiskey (guests' choice), simple syrup and freshly-squeeze lemon wedges makes this classic version, garnished with a cinnamon stick, lemon wedge and leafy mint sprig, the ideal accompaniment for a cold winter's night. Sip and Savor: 1 River St., (914) 478-2800
