Sazerac Gastro Lounge: Buzz on bars, Cherry Heering & Xanté in punch bowl

The Drinks: You could opt for the classic Sazerac (rye, cognac or bourbon with absinthe and Peychaud’s bitters for $12), invented in New Orleans before the Civil War. The real fun, however, starts with Anthony’s handcrafted concoctions, such as the 782 Sazerac (Maker’s Mark bourbon infused with lemongrass and black pepper with Peychaud’s, in-house vanilla gomme syrup, absinthe and lemon essence for $13). His own Mr. Marc Etting, a drink based on his past amorous misadventures, features Banff Ice Vodka, Triple Sec, San Pellegrino Aranciata Rossa, pomegranate and absinthe mist, for $11. The powerful Shin Ichi (Daté’s cocktail) consists of ginseng and ginger-infused bourbon, ginger beer, cherry bitters, rosemary-sage tincture, orange and lime and goes for $10. If you’ve got a party, you can try the OOOOOHHH YEEAAAHHHH!!! punch bowl (Brut, Leblon Cachaca, Heering cherry, Xante pear, San Pellegrino Aranciata Rossa, orange and lemon for $50, serving four to six).
