The Sazerac is an amazing whiskey cocktail with the subtle, but complex flavors of anise!
Some of you may be under the impression that I am a professional cocktail drinker. While I did create this blog solely with the purpose of adding professional cocktail drinker, professional diner at restaurants, and professional shopper to my list of skills, I am actually a professional photographer. Shameless plug for photography business –> Pamela Greer Photography. Guess when everyone wants to have there photos taken? Did you guess the fall? Then you would be right.
So, right now I am crazy busy, but I still needed a cocktail for this week. I needed something quick and easy. Enter the Sazarec. A couple of weeks ago, we had the pleasure of touring Chattanooga Whiskey Company. After the fun tour comes the even more fun part – the whiskey tasting. Besides tasting the whiskey you get to taste cocktails made with Dr. Thacher’s Cocktail Syrups, which are made in Chattanooga! I’ll be reviewing the tour and tasting on Thursday, so I’m not going to go into any more detail, other than to say, we loved it!
Being a local business myself, I am all for supporting local businesses, especially when it tastes this good! These were amazing. Seriously good. The cocktail syrup is so mellow, with subtle hints of anise. There are other syrups and I plan on trying them all. Also, I realized I called this a two ingredient cocktail, when really it’s three if you count the lemon peel.
- 2 oz whiskey
- .75 oz Sazerac Syrup
- lemon peel
- Combine whiskey and syrup in a cocktail shaker and add ice. Shake for 15 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass and add lemon peel.
