Saddle Peak Lodge is not easy to breeze in and out of. Located in Calabasas, away from the bustle of L.A., the restaurant's wood-and-stone accented dining room and lovely outdoor patio are best suited to a relaxed afternoon that melts into a leisurely evening. However, drinkers looking just to get away from it all would do well to sneak away for happy hour, which is 4 to 6 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays. Chef Christopher Kufek's food is more affordable during those magic moments, and you can sip on sommelier and mixologist Christopher Barragan's tasty cocktails. You won't find far-out creations made with obscure liqueurs, just straight-forward American classics, like this breezy take on the classic Sazerac made with Brazilian sugar instead of the more traditional sugar cube.
