Combine the ingredients. Serve on the rocks

Hurry! Hurry! Sazerac

  • 1 sugar cube or 3/4 oz simple syrup
  • Several dashes of Peychoud's bitters
  • Absinthe or another anise-flavored spirit

Add ice to an old-fashioned glass.  Let chill while making drink.

In a mixing glass or shaker, muddle the sugar or simple syrup with the bitters. Add ice and Rye Whisky and stir.

Discard ice from old- fashioned glass and add a small amount of Absinthe. Swirl in glass and discard excess.
