Cocktail du Jour: Sazerac

I look forward to finally tasting my very first Sazerac. A mixture of rye whiskey, bitters, simple syrup, and absinthe, with the essence of a lemon twist, served in a well chilled old fashioned glass. (google Sazerac for the exact recipe) I think I'm falling in love, being SEDUCED by this drink, and it will probably become my new Negroni, which I started drinking because some of the characters in Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City favored them... (DeDe Halcyon's husband). Absinthe has now been legalized! The Sazerac was made the official cocktail of New Orleans in 2008. Make one or two today and enjoy... DF *****
