Friday nights are for cocktail hour. Well, this Friday, we created the sazerac. Fun Fact: "The Sazerac is named after the Sazerac brand cognac that was used in the original cocktail (instead of Whiskey) that was served by Peychauds apothecary in the French quarters of Haiti as early as the 1850s" (The Bar Cabinet, 2021). 

Serves 2

2 Dash Absinthe

2 Sugar Cubes

2 Splash Soda Water

4 Ounces Rye

4 Dashes Peychaud's Bitters

Garnish: Lemon Peel 

To a rock glass, add a dash of absinthe. Swirl to coat and discard excess. In other rocks or mixing glass, muddle sugar cubes with soda water. Once dissolved, add rye, bitters, and ice and stir well—strain into a prepared rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon peel and enjoy.
