Ah, the Sazerac. A house favorite.
A close relative to the Old Fashioned, the Sazerac is a rich, spirit-forward cocktail that was first created in the mid-1800’s. We make ours with Rye Whiskey, although it can be done with Cognac as well. Add in a bit of Absinthe, a sugar cube, and three dashes of Peychaud’s bitters, and there you have it. Grab a Sazerac on Wednesday’s for half off.
