    Nice presentation although I think I'd go with maple syrup or agave nectar as the sweetener
  • Allie Whitehead
    We may have to try that. Thanks!
  • Brandon Herring
    ...but that wouldn't be a Sazerac. Like absinthe sipper on the side. Nice touch.
  • Nick Heller
    Definitely a variation I'm into. If you want to give me a free shot of absinthe, I'll gladly take it!
  • Jazz Rhythm
    Way too sweet with half the required whiskey. The better recipe will use only 1 sugar cube and 2 full shots of rye whiskey. The BEST recipe will only use half a sugar cube. Be generous with the Peychauds Bitters and Absinthe rinse.
