Sazerac & Sanya: this week’s cocktail was pretty much chosen for how good it would look next to one of current faves, Sanya. This American original was also chosen for its sophisticated flavors, which when paired with Sanya’s luxurious gold accents, makes it easy for anybody to feel like a VIP. Give it a try and release the sexy socialite in you!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
2 ounces rye whiskey
1/2 ounce of simple syrup
1/4 ounce of absinthe
2 dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
Lemon peel to garnish
HOW TO MAKE
Fill an old fashioned glass with ice and set aside to chill. In a separate mixing glass, add a few ice cubes, rye whiskey, simple syrup, and Peychaud’s Bitters and stir.
Discard the ice from the old fashioned glass. Pour the absinthe in and turn the glass until the inside of the glass is well coated; discard excess liquid.
Strain the rye mixture into the old fashioned glass discarding the ice, rub a lemon peel around the rim, and enjoy!
