Transcript:Sazerac RecipeHi! I'm Sam from Pete's Candy Store in New York City for About.com Food, and today I'm going to show you how to make a Sazerac.
Sazerac IngredientsFor the Sazerac, you're going to need:
- 1 1/2 ounces of rye whiskey
- a dash of absinthe or absinthe substitute
- a couple dashes of bitters
- 1/2 ounce of simple syrup
- a lemon twist
Mix the SazeracTo make a Sazerac, you're going to want to begin with a martini glass filled with ice and water. In another glass, you're going to want to add your rye, bitters, simple syrup, and then ice. You'll want to stir this. Empty out the ice and water.
You're going to add your absinthe or absinthe substitute, and what you're going to do is coat the glass, then discard. Add a lemon twist, and fill. And that's how you make a Sazerac.
