A refreshing and elegant John Collins, enjoyed at this terrific retro-style steakhouse on the California coast. A John Collins is a Tom Collins, basically, only made with bourbon in place of the usual gin.

Our meal was much enhanced by a side of this:

— homemade mayonnaise. Amazing how much richer and silkier the real thing is than the industrial stuff.

    I’ve always wanted to try that real mayonnaise; is it more eggier, more yolkier, less oily? I’ve only ever had the other kind, can’t imagine what the real stuff must taste like; no doubt much better…

  2. What oil do you use for your homemade mayo? I saw someone talk about using bacon grease once, which sounded interesting if perhaps overpowering.

    • It’s a very cool place. They have the “retro seafood and steakhouse” thing down to such perfection that it’s a surprise to learn they’ve only been open for five or so years. Do you like the seafood-and-steakhouse experience as much as I do? It’s a great restaurant genre. I’ve been collecting snapz of places like Sly’s for a little while and will share ’em soon.
