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!
