New Recipe Page: The Sazerac
This week we have the official cocktail of New Orleans and one of the enduring classics of the Pre-Prohibition era: the Sazerac. When made well few drinks are it’s equal. It’s a close relative of the Old Fashioned, featuring whiskey, sugar and bitters, but a few additions and a unique preparation that propel it in a completely different direction. It may not look like much in a plain glass with no ice and no garnish, but that’s part of the Sazerac’s it’s charm. It’s a prince dressed like a pauper, and a very worthy addition to your cocktail arsenal.
