Disappointing Sazerac at Sazerac (Seattle)

As a huge fan of the Sazerac, I was excited to try a restaurant named after the drink. Alas, the bartender made me one of the worst Sazeracs I've ever had: shaken to death, served up in a martini glass, sickly sweet with way too much sugar, barely a dash of Peychaud's, and served with a lemon twist floating in the drink... I attempted to politely point out to the bartender that this wasn't exactly the traditional way to prepare the drink, and she angrily replied that there are "lots of ways to make it." I'm not so sure of that :-)

Anyway, I just wanted to share my experience in case anyone else is looking for a proper Sazerac in Seattle. IMNSHO, this is one to avoid...
