Ingredients needed to make a Sazerac

2 ozs rye (we used redemption its good)
absinthe
simple syrup
peychaud bitters

Sazerac Cocktail Recipe Directions

Chill your glass chill your rye coat chilled glass with absinthe and then discard. Leave a small puddle at bottom of glass. Add a teaspoon or so of sime syrup, or to taste, then a few shakes of peychaud bitters. Shake the chilling rye in the shaker then pour into prepped glass.

tedvilla's Notes

A new orleans classic. Using absinthe adds body and a sense if danger to this. Absinte and peychaud bitters give a very anise-like body to this one. This was the beverage on New Years Eve. Moving ahead. Looking back. Happy new years to all.

@bartender old tyme for sure. I felt that i should have be wearing sleeve gaiters and have a handlebar mustache as i mixed this. @forrestfrazier do you add rocks to the glass or serve it up? I can see how the lemon would punch this up

I always add a nice healthy lemon twist to this and serve in a rocks glass. That allows for a more complex aroma.

Its a good drink for sure. Its more mild than one would expect and the proportions at just a couple ounces of rye are very friendly.
