Boss Royal Cocktail Of The Week: Sazerac

Boss Royal Cocktail Of The Day: Sazerac
Source

The Sazerac is often considered the first American cocktail. It dates back to New Orleans before the American Civil War. Interestingly enough, it could not be made properly for almost a hundred years due to the fact that absinthe was one of the main ingredients. Cognac and Brandy were used as substitutes.

Please enjoy the Sazerac responsibly, like a Boss.
