The Sazerac

The Sazerac is a drink that was developed down in good ole’ New Orleans. Traditionally made with Cognac (ours is Rye Whiskey), the Sazerac is made by coating the inside of a chilled old fashioned glass with absinthe, and then straining the other ingredients into said glass after being mixed.
