I was thinking of something cool to write about. Something interesting. Something funny. You know the style of thing. I understand, Dear Reader, that you are a discerning reader. Looking for writing that satisfies you on many levels. So I put my thinking cap on for you. And what I came up with was, essentially, a nice cold sazerac. Then a couple more. Now I’m in no fit state to write anything. So, because I like you and want the best for you, I’m giving you two things.
Firstly, my recipe for a sazerac which you should try. It’s a cheeky little drink from New Orleans which I know you, as discerning people, will adore.
- Chill an old-fashioned glass by filling it with ice and letting it sit while preparing the rest of the drink.
- In a separate mixing glass, muddle the simple syrup and Peychaud bitters together.
- Add the rye whiskey and ice to the bitters mixture and stir.
- Discard the ice in the chilled glass and rinse it with absinthe by pouring a small amount into the glass, swirling it around and discarding the liquid.
- Strain the whiskey mixture from the mixing glass into the old-fashioned glass.
- Garnish with a lemon twist. The lemon twist should be squeezed over the drink to release its essences but that the twist should not be dropped into the glass itself.
Secondly, because I want you to have something nice to read while you drink your lovely new Sazerac à la Rob I’m putting links to the posts I’ve written over the past week. All on one page for your catching-up pleasure. Think of it as the blog equivalent of a +1 channel.
Enjoy the sazerac and the catch up.
