Sazerac

  • Servings: Makes 1 Drink

"This drink was originally made with Cognac," says Mike Ryan. "But after the grape-killing phylloxera epidemic in France all but wiped out Cognac production in the 1870s, bartenders replaced it with American-made rye whiskey." The recipe here is for the "modern" (rye-based) Sazerac.
