One of our newer bartenders, Steve, is a huge fan of the Sazerac. So, he took inspiration from that drink and made a rum-based version with our new Bourbon Cask Rum as the base. It’ll be going on our fall menu – here is a preview:
Prepare the glass:
Fill a rocks glass with ice, add ¼ oz Sirène Absinthe Verte. Let it chill.
In a Mixing Glass, add:
¼ oz Demerara Simple
¼-½ oz Orange Liqueur (to taste – we use our housemade; try Cointreau or a Dry Curacao)
3 dashes Orange Bitters (we use Scrappy’s)
2 oz Bourbon Cask rum
Stir these ingredients well with ice. Then swirl the rocks glass with ice/absinthe combo and dump (or keep absinthe for enjoyment later). Strain the cocktail into your prepared rocks glass, and garnish with an orange swath or twist.
