4. Sazerac

Ingredients: Rye whiskey, absinthe, Peychaud’s bitters and a sugar cube.

Absinthe and whiskey. There’s a bit of a trend appearing that the more popular the cocktail the more lethal it seems to be. The main ingredient was originally Sazerac Cognac, and while the brandy was replaced, the name remained. There is also now a brand of Sazerac rye whisky if you’re feeling sorry for the brand.

It can be served straight up or with ice, but the one essential part is the peel. Lemon or orange, just a twist lifts the flavour slightly away from the intensity of the absinthe.
