Sadie's barman Giovanni Martinez launched a new cocktail menu at the Hollywood restaurant and lounge, a robust list of specialties that highlight warming flavors of the season. Think: Chartruese-driven The Last Word, or the Velvet with its rum, clove and date-infused balsamic vinegar.
But the most intriguing is the layered bevvie made with warm Galliano, slightly warmer Frangelico, and a cooler concoction of coconut syrup and Mount Gay rum. It's served in a port pipe, a 17th Century German drinking vessel that allows you to drink from the bottom. Even though it really looks like a pipe, you don't smoke it, which is why Martinez calls it This is Not a Pipe (a play on the Magritte painting). No matter how high-brow the definition gets, they should take a deposit from anyone who orders it, otherwise there will be no port pipes left by winter.
