The Rickey at Dream Midtown has just launched their very own cold cure – in cocktail form! 

The Peaty Penicillin is a heady concoction of Johnnie Walker Black Label, 12-year aged scotch, ginger-honey syrup, lemon juice and rosemary, which delivers an assertive whiff of peat and brine, while also serving as a sure-fire cure – even if you’re not completely under the weather.
