Sazerac is a cocktail made with whiskey, generally associated with the
Sazerac Bar at the Fairmont Hotel. The bartender coats an Old Fashion
glass with herbsaint, pours out the excess, pours in the Sazerac mix
and tops off the uniced drink with a twist of lemon.
If you want to look like a tourist, ask the bartender for a Sazerac
on the rocks. The drink was developed in 1850 at an Exchange Alley bar.
In 1949, the bar was moved to the Roosevelt Hotel (now the Fairmont),
which pays an annual fee to Sazerac Co. Inc. That company owns the
rights to the formula and bottles the drink in a New Orleans
suburb called Metairie.
