Sazerac

Try the timeless Sazerac cocktail with this easy-to-make recipe

The famed Sazerac cocktail is a classic, but did you know the original Sazerac was made with brandy, absinthe, a lump of sugar and a few drops of bitters? It was a medicinal recipe created by Creole apothecary Antoine Amedie Peychaud.

1 1/2 oz. Sazerac Rye Whiskey
1 tsp. Pernod or Herbsaint liqueur
1 tsp. sugar
3 dashes of Peychaud’s bitters
Ice

Coat a chilled, old-fashioned glass with the Pernod or Herbsaint by swirling it around the entire sides and bottom of the glass. In a cocktail shaker, add a few ice cubes, rye whiskey, sugar and bitters. Shake gently, then strain into the glass.
