Sazerac

INGREDIENTS:

  • Vieux Pontarlier Absinthe
  • 1 Sugar cube (Demerara or white)
  • 3 Dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
  • 2 Dashes Angostura Bitters
  • 2 oz Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey
  • Slice of lemon peel

Glass: Rocks

PREPARATION:

Rinse a chilled rocks glass with absinthe, discarding any excess, and set aside. In a mixing glass, muddle the sugar cube and both bitters. Add the rye, fill with ice and stir. Strain into the prepared glass. Twist a slice of lemon peel over the surface to extract the oils and then discard.
