Rye Sazerac - An all-time classic

No special story or bottle test, just a nice drink because I was craving for this one. The Sazerac is the official cocktail of New Orleans and without any doubt one of my favourite Old Fashioned cocktails. You can make it with brandy or Rye whiskey. The best cocktail I ever tasted was a Sazerac created with super-premium cognac.

It’s very easy to prepare, just like an Old Fashioned recipe should be: You only need your spirit, sugar, bitters and ice.

This time I really wanted to make one with Rye. I also used Absinthe bitters instead of Peychaud’s bitters.

Rye Sazerac

6 cl Sunken Still Rye whisky
1 cl simple syrup
2 dashes Absinthe bitters
Absinthe (for the rinse)

Start by giving your glass a nice Absinthe rinse. Put all other ingredients in a mixglass with lots of ice. Stir for 20 seconds and strain in your glass. Garnish with a peel or a dehydrated slice of lemon.
