One sugar cube
Three dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
Two ounces of rye whiskey (you can change the measurement according to taste)
1/4 ounce of absinthe (you can also use anise liqueur)
Lemon twist (for garnish)
Prepare the old-fashioned glass:
The first step for Cherry Sazerac is preparing the old-fashioned glass. Take the glass and fill it with ice chunks. Keep the glass at the side while you prepare the rest of the drink.
Muddle the sugar cube:
Now, take a mixing glass to prepare the mixture of sugar and bitters. Add the sugar cube to the mixing glass and soak them in bitters. Now, take a muddler and muddle the sugar cubes with the bitters.
Add the rye whiskey:
After that, take the rye whiskey and pour it into the mixing glass of sugar cubes and bitters. Stir the combination of a sugar cube, bitters, and rye whiskey.
Rinse the glass with absinthe:
In this step, take the old-fashioned glass with ice in it. Discard the ice chunks from the glass and rinse it with absinthe. Pour a small amount of absinthe, swirl it around the chilled glass and throw the rest of the liquid away.
Add the whiskey mixture to the old-fashioned glass:
Take the rinsed glass and pour the prepared mixture of sugar cubes, bitters, and rye whiskey into the glass.
Top the glass with garnishes:
In the last step, take a lemon and squeeze it over your prepared drink. The essence of lemon in the drink will add to the bitter flavor. Try not to throw the peel of the lemon but rather lay it on the rim of the glass, and your classic Cherry Sazerac drink is ready to serve.
You can muddle sugar cubes with water and then add bitters to them.
For bitters, you can use a combination.
You can add more amount of whiskey to the drink if you like more taste of whiskey. But do not forget to balance the flavor of the whiskey with some more sugar cubes.
For rinsing the glass, you can use another liqueur other than absinthe.
For a spicy touch of rye, you can experiment with bourbons.
