Author Notes: I went to 4 bars in the French Quarter to try Sazaracs and take away the best recipe. This was my favorite but after 4 Sazaracs I could only remember the recipe and not the name of the bar where I got it – maybe the Hotel Monteleone? —Robert Iulo
tablespoon Anisette (or Pernod)
dashes Peychauds bitters
teaspoon simple syrup
dashes Angostura bitters
- Put Anisette in a small rocks glass. Coat the sides of the glass with it and then add some ice.
