This recipe for a Sazerac cocktail takes the historical mixed drink back to its original roots when it was initially made with Cognac. Enjoy its ultra-smooth and well-balanced taste.


  • 2 shots Cognac
  • 1 bar-spoon sugar syrup
  • 3 dashes Peychaud’s Aromatic bitters
  • Dash of absinthe
  • Lemon peel


  1. Pre-chill a cocktail glass by placing it into the freezer for 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the chilled glass; add a dash of absinthe and tilt the glass so that the inside becomes coated with the spirit.
  3. Pour all of the ingredients, except for the lemon peel, into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  4. Slowly stir the mixture for 30 seconds and then strain into the prepared cocktail glass.
  5. Gently twist the lemon peel over the drink to release its natural oils and then drop the peel into the glass; serve immediately.
