How to Make a Sazerac

How to Cocktail: Sazerac

This classic rye whiskey cocktail was born when Old New Orleans was young. Top San Francisco bartender Erik Adkins shows you how to make a Sazerac.

INGREDIENTS:

  • Absinthe
  • 1 Sugar cube (Demerara or white)
  • 3 Dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
  • 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 2 oz Russell’s Reserve Rye Whiskey
  • Slice of lemon peel
  • Glass: Rocks

PREPARATION:
Rinse a chilled rocks glass with absinthe, discarding any excess, and set aside. In a mixing glass, muddle the sugar cube and both bitters. Add the rye, fill with ice and stir. Strain into the prepared glass. Twist a slice of lemon peel over the surface to extract the oils and then discard.
