|The Sazerac Coctail : OFFICIAL COCKTAIL OF NEW ORLEANS
This is an absolutely exquisite cocktail. As you sip it, you come across layer after layer of flavor -- the
warmth and glowing burn of the rye, effused with the flavors of spice and honey, the bite of the bitters
balanced with the sweetness of the sugar, with the subtle yet complex flavor of the anise underneath and
the perfume of the lemon oil from the twist feel like a symphony inside your mouth. This is also a drink that
warms up well, revealing even more flavors. Sip it very slowly. Savor it. Take your time with it.
