Sazerac Cocktail

2

"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."

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

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