Last Call: Loving Cup Sazerac at Rockwell Republic Katy Batdorff


Devin Vranich, the sly devil behind the bar at Rockwell/Republic, is the man responsible for this month’s Last Call: the Loving Cup Sazerac. The rye bites you with a quick burn before the chartreuse and citrus mellow out the drink. Even the absinthe makes its presence known, cooling off the rye. It’s a doozy — the Loving Cup weighs in at roughly 2.75 ounces of straight booze, and it’s gorgeous too, the color of a freshly minted penny. What a beautiful buzz!
