Ti Martin’s Sazerac

Ti Martin’s Sazerac

As shared on The Rachel Maddow Show, live from New Orleans, Feb. 5, 2010

Glass: Old Fashioned

1. Pour an oz or so of absinthe over ice in the glass and swirl to coat the sides. Set it aside.

 2. In a mixing tin or glass with ice,
 add: 2 oz Sazerac Rye Whiskey
A barspoon of simple syrup*
Three or four shakes of Peychaud’s Bitters
One or two shakes of Angostura Bitters

*Simple syrup is one or 1 ½ parts sugar stirred into one part water until the sugar dissolves. Some say heat it until syrupy, then refrigerate it; others say don’t bother.)

3. Discard the ice in the glass, leaving just a little of the absinthe to coat the glass. 4. Strain and pour the cocktail into the glass. Squeeze the oil from a lemon twist onto the drink, and rub it over the glass rim. It’s ok to drop in the twist as a garnish – or not. Voila!
