Cocktails with Arcadium-Sazerac

Cocktails with Arcadium-Sazerac

March is here and that means two things…

1. Patio weather is just around the corner (despite the 8-12 inches of snow that’s suppose to fall tonight)…who else is dying for a cocktail, street side, under the lights of downtown Lexington…And 2. This kicks off my 4-week cocktail series with Arcadium.

I am not much of a beer drinker so my usual “go-to” drink is a good ol’ bourbon and diet (diet Ale-8-one or Diet Coke). Easy peasy, right? Almost too easy…and slightly boring. In an effort to “up” my cocktail game I asked Arcadium to partner with me and teach us how to whip up a few of my bar favorites (to include: the Sazerac, the French 75, an Old Fashioned, and their famous Sunday funday drink, the Bloody Mary).

Let’s start with the Sazerac!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 ounce of Rye Whiskey
  • 2-3 dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
  • 1 dash of angostura bitters
  • Lemon Peel
  • Simply Syrup
  • Abinthe (only enough to coat the glass)

Let’s get with Case to show us how to put it all together.
