Absinthe (398 Hayes) calls their Galapagos, which is made with pisco, kaffir lime that's been muddled in peppery syrup, lemon-lime juice and a splash of grapefruit juice, "A Xanadoozle creation named in honor of Kurt Vonnegut's modern classic of the same name." Brandied cherries sit on the bottom of the glass, waiting to reward the drinker with an intense final fusion of flavor. We also just discovered that the Galapagos made 7X7's list of The Big Eat SF: 100 Things to Try Before You Die, charting in at a respectable number 45. We agree: Try it before you die, but preferably sooner.
