It's Friday night! I'm a few nights late for Mardi Gras. But, as New Orleans' signature cocktail is one of my favorites, it's a must. So, here's a slightly belated Sazerac.
Ingredients makes 2
- 1 ounce absinthe
- 4 ounces rye
- 1/2 ounce maple syrup
- 8 dashes bitters (I used my homemade Meyer Lemon Bitters)
- Meyer lemon twists for garnish
Pour absinthe, rye, and maple syrup into an ice-filled shaker. Shake and strain cocktail into two glasses. Add bitters to the glasses. Rub the rims with a lemon twist and drop twist into the glass. Cheers. Laissez le bon temps rouler!
