Recipe: The Sazerac

19 03 2010

The cocktail that saves Win’s moonshine party or Cal’s “hypnotism networking opportunity” is one of the oldest cocktails in the country, born in New Orleans before the Civil War.  Since a lot has changed since the 1830’s there have been a lot of versions of the drink, but here’s one!

1 tsp sugar
1 1/2 oz rye whiskey
1 dash Deva absinthe
2 dashes Peychaud® bitters
2 dashes Angostura® bitters
1 twist lemon peel
ice

Chill an old-fashioned glass by filling with crushed ice. In another glass mix the sugar with the bitters dissolving the sugar. Add some ice, stirring to chill. In the old-fashioned glass remove the ice and pour in the absinthe coating the entire glass. Remove the excess absinthe. Add the rye whiskey and bitters/sugar mixture. Add the lemon twist.

Happy Thursday.
