Sazerac Cocktail
Posted by Lori Ross - Viewed 1431 times

recipe by Lori Ross

In the late 18th century, a pharmacist, Antoine Amedee Peychaud invented this cocktail in New Orleans' famous French Quarter where he owned his shop. The original cocktail was a concoction of brandy, absinthe (now illegal because it was so addictive!) and bitters. Some historians say the term 'cocktail' came from a tiny French egg-cup called "coquetier" that was used to serve Sazerac cocktail.

2 oz Bourbon
Dash of bitters

1/4 oz Pernod
1 sugar cube

Garnish: Lemon peel

Shake all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into an old-fashioned glass. Garnish with a lemon peel.
