Sazerac Cocktail Recipe

I had a wonderful surprise the other day when Alise presented me with a favorite cocktail, The Sazerac. And no, this is not the energy source that S.H.I.E.L.D was holding in The Avengers. This is a cocktail I have a hard time finding since many bars in the area do not carry Absinthe. If you enjoy and Old Fashioned then this may be something you want to try.


1/4 oz Absinthe
1 1/2 oz Rye Whiskey
3 Dashes Aromatic Bitters
1 Lemon Peel

In a Tom Collins Glass put in Absinthe and rinse around glass and empty out any extra into sink. This is only to add a small dimension of flavor versus overwhelming the drink with the anise and earthy qualities of Absinthe. Rub the lemon peel on the rim and place in the glass as a garnish and to add those lemon oils to the drink. Pour in Whiskey and dash in Bitters. Give the glass a quick stir and serve. Enjoy!
