The Classic Sazerac Cocktail

The Sazerac is a timeless cocktail from New Orleans that was created in the 1800s. It is a simple recipe and a nice way to doctor up whiskey. The recipe requires just four ingredients: whiskey, a sugar cube, Peychaud’s Bitters, and anise liqueur. It is one of the best examples of a well-balanced cocktail that you will encounter, with the anise, bitters, and sugar perfectly accenting a spicy rye. As is the case with many popular drinks, there are varying opinions regarding how to make it. Some drinkers prefer to use their favorite bitters, some a specific rye, and many have a preference for the anise liqueur. Often, the glass is rinsed with absinthe, and that’s what is used here. But even the technique is disputed, though every element is a matter of personal preference. Despite all the variations, many bartenders will tell you that there are a few things to avoid when making a Sazerac. To prevent a Sazerac faux pas, never shake it. Don’t serve it on the rocks or in a cocktail glass, but instead, serve it in an oversize old-fashioned glass. And don’t let the lemon peel touch the drink. Express the oils over the glass, and hang the peel on the rim if you like, or discard. 

Here is what you’ll need to make it:

  • 1 sugar cube

  • 3 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters

  • 2 ounces Filmoore Rides Whiskey, to taste

  • 1/4 ounce absinthe, or anise liqueur

  • Lemon twist, for garnish
