Sazerac (IBA) Description
While bartenders in other cities have complicated the Sazerac by using a combination of spirits (us included), in New Orleans they keep it simple: straight rye whisky with a dash of sugar, stirred and strained into an Herbsaint washed glass.
- Here is how you make it:
- Rinse a chilled old-fashioned glass with the absinthe add crushed ice and set it aside. Stir the remaining ingredients over ice and set it aside. Discard the ice and any excess absinthe from the prepared glass and strain the drink into the glass.
