Sazerac Cocktail
 
"this is an absolutely exquisite cocktail. as you sip it, you come across 
layer after layer of flavor -- the warmth and glowing burn of the rye, 
effused with the flavors of spice and honey, the bite of the bitters 
balanced with the sweetness of the sugar, with the subtle yet complex 
flavor of the anise underneath and the perfume of the lemon oil from the 
twist feel like a symphony inside your mouth. this is also a drink that 
warms up well, revealing even more flavors. sip it very slowly. savor it. 
take your time with it. 
 
"there are recipes that call for angostura bitters as well as peychaud's 
bitters for this cocktail. all i have to say is ... it wasn't invented 
that way, 
 
m. peychaud didn't make it that way, they didn't serve it that way at the 
original sazerac coffeehouse, even though tom handy's bartenders 
eventually began adding that as well, so i'd just as soon leave them out. 
i love the flavor of peychaud's bitters, and angostura bitters are 
ubiquitous enough -- just about any drink you order that calls for bitters 
(and there aren't many left) use only angostura.. give the little guy a 
chance. 
 
although i love a sazerac made with rye whiskey, you can make a truly 
spectacular drink"
