Sazerac | Classic New Orleans Cocktail Recipe

Sazerac | Classic New Orleans Cocktail is made with Rye Whiskey and Herbisaint. The Sazerac Cocktail dates back to 1838.

Known as the First Cocktail

Created by Antoine Amedie Peychaud, owner of a New Orleans apothecary in 1838. Originally the Sazerac was made with Brandy and his “Peychaud’s Bitters,” made from a secret family recipe. In 1873 the recipe was altered to replace the brandy with American Rye Whisky and a dash of absinthe.

In 1940, the Official Sazerac Cocktail recipe was modified to use Herbsaint as the absinthe.
