This widely known as a New Orleans classic drink.

Wesley says it’s NOLA’s version of an Old Fashioned.  Well, call me Old Fashioned…but it’s down-right delicious!  The Peychaud and Angostura Bitters can be found at most well-stocked liquor stores.   Can’t go wrong with a true blue Cajun Classic Cocktail, and this Sazerac Cocktail does NOT disappoint!
