Featured Cocktail tonight:
Cognac Sazarac
3 oz Martel XO Cognac
4 dashes of Peychaud bitters
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
1 brown sugar cube
St. George Absinthe (for coating)
lemon twist

Method: Add sugar cube to mixing glass and add bitters. Muddle the sugar and bitters gently until broken down into a paste like consistency. Add Cognac and cracked ice. Stirred for 20 seconds. Separately, coat a chilled old fashioned glass with Absinthe and swirl until the interior is covered. Add the mixture to the glass and express the lemon oils from the twist over the glass and discard. Drink up!

The original Sazarac was made with Cognac!
