DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. - - Hudson Valley Restaurant Week (HVRW) started Monday, Nov. 2 (and goes through Sunday, Nov. l5) and while food usually takes center stage, there are also a host of cocktails that deserve your attention.

There are 32 Dutchess eateries participating in HVRW; go here for full list.

HRVW includes a special three-course lunch ($20.95) and dinner menu ($29.95), not including beverage, tax or gratuity.

Below is one of the specially crafted libations being masterfully mixed by the folks at Daryl's House in Pawling.

Smokey Manhattan , Daryl's House, Pawling

  • 2oz Black Dirt Distillery Bourbon
  • 1oz sweet vermouth
  • A dash of Angostura Bitters
  • A dash of maple syrup
  • Add smoke from hickory wood

Mix together and serve neat in a smoky snifter.

And though the one below isn't in Dutchess, its nod to Beacon is worth a mention.

The Newburgh Beacon Bridge, Ralph and Dave's, Verplank

This drink is a spin on the classic boilermaker using Hudson Valley beer served at Ralph and Dave's with Newburgh Brewing Company and Beacon American Whiskey from Denning's Point Distillery in Beacon.

In a pint glass fill 3/4 way with Newburgh Brewing Company's Checkpoint Charlie Berliner Weiss. Pour 1.5 ounce of Beacon seven-year American Whiskey into a shot glass. Drop shot glass into beer and slam it.
