"There's a lot to love about this classic whiskey and bitters beverage. The official drink of New Orleans, the Sazerac is every bit as aromatic and flavorful as most anything else from down on the bayou."

  1. Fill a rocks glass with 1 cup ice and set aside to chill, about 5 minutes. Discard ice.

  • Editor's Note:
  • For a more traditional Sazerac, use Cognac instead of whiskey, and add a teaspoon of absinthe.

I LUBBOCK THIS COCKTAIL. Reminds me of the French Quarter in New Orleans,

Traditionally the glass is rinsed with a tiny bit of absinthe.
