Don's Sazerac Mix
- THE STORY
Let the good times roll.
Images of sultry nights on the Rue Royal come to mind when one thinks of this classic New Orleans Cocktail. Originally created by Antoine Peychaud, the cocktail is a sublime mixture of rye whiskey, absinthe, Peychaud's own bitters, lemon peel, and a hint of sugar, served very cold. Mix one up at your at-home bar, or make it quick and easy with this hand-crafted mix from Washington D.C.'s Don Morton. Simply mix 1/2 oz Don's Sazerac Mix with 2 oz. premium rye whiskey, and pour over ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon peel, and start sipping. You'll soon know why the Sazerac is the official cocktail of New Orleans!
