    lo siento; the Sazerac actually popped up on the cocktails post. I just hit the wrong link.

    I used angostura; I keep them around for a few other drinks I like…I don’t think those are the right ones, though.

    Peychaud’s… I doubt many people would notice the difference in taste, but for the sake of history, since Peychaud was the inventor of the drink… (but then again I think he used cognac rather than rye, so there goes historical accuracy.)

    I actually discovered it on the Gumbopages link mentioned in the other thread, many moons ago. It was one of the first drinks that convinced me that I should mix my own rather than go to bars. Night and day better than anything I’d ever been served.

    Nothing against Sage or anyone’s favorite bartender, but my first martini of the year always goes down on my porch. It’s an important ritual of mine, a salute to Spring and the death of evil Winter, a season that makes my Navy-knee ache and my temper violent. When Winter finally gives up a death rattle (usually in the form of tulips) I am ready with the gin. I plan it in advance, friends come over, and it must be perfect.
    I think I may have to make an exception Wednesday, though, and try out the wares of this legendary Sage bartender. I think it’s supposed to be warm Wednesday, anyway, like 68?

    Have we picked a day and verified that everyone’s favorite bartender will be there?

    OK, it looks like everyone’s favorite martini mixologist will not be behind the bar on Wednesday or Thursday, but will be on Friday and Saturday.

    Crappity crap. I’ll be out of town Friday and Saturday. Can we shoot for next week? Or will you survey the place without me and I’ll join you for a later gathering?

    I walk by the place daily, so I’d be happy to meet you there any time.

    Tonight or Friday.. Friday is best. Hopefully I’ll be unable to attend next week.

    Unless Catnfiddle objects, let’s go with Friday, and we can always plan to meet again there later. If she objects, I guess I’ll just have to go to Martini Happy Hour at Sage twice this week.
