Last night, after work, I bellied up to the S.Y. Kitchen bar and ordered a Sazerac. I love cocktails. I love rye whiskey. I love cocktails with rye whiskey. A Sazerac has all of those things (plus a rinse of absinth, some Peychaud's Bitters, a sugar cube, orange peel, and lemon peel). S.Y. Kitchen has a delicious and modern take on Italian cuisine. They also have the best cocktails I've had in Santa Barbara County and they make better cocktails than just about every bar I've ever been to. The Sazerac was beautifully balanced and delicious. Go to S.Y. Kitchen and order one, you won't regret it.
