New Orleans Sazerak

March 4, 2014

1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp water
2 1/2 oz rye whiskey
3 dashes Peychaud Bitters
1 cup ice
1/2 tsp Herbsaint
lemon peel, for garnish


This is the official cocktail of New Orleans, and after sampling a few, you’ll understand why. Its red-orange hue makes it as pretty as it is tasty.

Yield: 1 cocktail

Add sugar and water to an old-fashioned glass, and mix until dissolved. Add whiskey, bitters and ice. In a second chilled old-fashioned glass, add Herbsaint. Swirl glass until coated, and discard excess. Strain whiskey mixture into chilled glass, and garnish with a lemon peel.
