Purists will scoff at our Sazerac recipe, but we really like it. Instead of Herbsaint, we use Sambuca and instead of simple syrup, we pour in a generous amount of maple syrup. The result is a simple but robust drink that will knock you out. Enjoy!
Makes 2 cocktails
- 6 oz of Woodford Reserve Kentucky Bourbon
- 2 oz of Grade B maple syrup
- Splash of Sambuca
- Peychaud’s Bitters
- Lemon twists
Pour the bourbon, maple syrup and the Peychaud’s Bitter into a shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Before serving, add a splash of Sambuca to each cocktail glass, swirl it around and discard. Pour the shaker into the glasses and garnish with a lemon twist.
