Sazerac

Sazerac cocktail with absinthe and rye whiskey

This drink represents everything we love about New Orleans: the Southern heritage, the spicy flavors, the alluring hint of licorice. The technique is complicated, but the result is worth the labor.

Ingredients

Instructions

Put a little bit of absinthe liqueur in a chilled cocktail glass or champagne flute. Swirl it around to coat the glass and dump out the excess – this technique is called a “rinse.” Stir the rest of the ingredients with ice and strain into the rinsed glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
