WESTPORT, Conn. -- Looking for a way to stay warm? Westport eateries offer a variety of options for coming in from the cold, everything from hearty soups to rich hot chocolates to piping hot liqueurs. Here's a sample:
- Sip the cold away -- literally -- with a steaming mug of "Cold 911," an herbal blend of peppermint, juniper and eucalyptus from David's Tea . Warm Up: 135 Main St., 203- 221-4435, www.davidstea.com .
- Creamy, milky and made with tons of chocolate is one way to describe the cup of steamed deliciousness at The Granola Bar . Topped with an army of marshmallows, this favorite childhood drink may just become your favorite adult winter beverage. Also worth trying: The restaurant's Turkish Latte made with cardamom, cinnamon and vanilla syrup. Warm Up: 275 Post Road E., 203-349-5202, www.thegranolabarct.com .
- At Gold's Delicatessen , in business 50 years and counting, it's all about heaping portions just like Grandma used to make, including the ever-filling, soul-satisfying matzo ball soup. Warm Up: 421 Post Road E., 203-227-0101, www.goldsdelicatessen.com .
- No doubt you've had the gourmet coffee at NEAT , but have you tried the array of cocktails? The appropriately named "Baby, It's Cold Outside," made with Bulleit Rye, Becherovka, Angostura bitters, old-fashioned bitters and Earl Grey tea, is designed to shake those shivers away. For your daytime fix, try the Gibraltar, (espresso with steamed milk) or the stick-to-your-ribs (in a good way) steel-cut oatmeal. Warm Up: 6 Wilton Road, 203-557-8955, www.neatwestport.com/ .
