This cocktail is almost holy - at least in New Orleans - and I'm a bit awed a trying to mix it these 7.976 kilometers to the north-east of it's birthplace.

It's actually an Old Fashioned with a little something special.
  • 7,5 cl rye whiskey
  • Dash of Peychaud's bitters
  • Dash of angostura bitters
  • sugar cube
  • rinse of absinte
In mixing glass but the bitters over the sugarcube and muddle, add the rye and muddle further until the sugar is dissolved.
The get a low ball glass and rinse it with a few drops of absinthe, add a couple of large ice cubes and pour cocktail into glass. Stir to make it cold and garish with a lemon twist.
This is the kind of cocktail than rounds a stress full day of perfectly or lends itself to a warm summer night on the patio after sunset.
