Sazerac | Cocktail

  • 50 ml dark rum
  • 4 lime quarters
  • 1 1/2 bar spoon brown sugar
  • a splash of ginger beer
  • one lime wedge

This is how the Sazerac is prepared:

Fill a rocks glass with ice and water to chill the glass. In a second glass, muddle the lump sugar with the bitters. Add the rye to this mixture. Stir until everything is well mixed. Empty the ice from the first glass. Pour the absinthe into the glass and swirl to coat the sides of the glass. Pour away any excess absinthe. Pour the rye-sugar-bitter mixture into the coated glass. Twist a lemon peel over the glass and rub the rim of the glass with the peel. The peel can be discarded or added to the cocktail.
