Saz Arrack is my arrack inspired take on the the classic sazerac cocktail. Arrack, a coconut based spirit from Sri Lanka works perfectly here with a dash of agave syrup – which enhances the smokiness of the alcohol and adds a dash of sweetness (use simple sugar syrup if you can’t find agave). Don’t forget that final splash of absinthe that gives this drink its complexity. The perfect cocktail for a chilly winter night – or as a post prandial on the beach!
5ml agave syrup
3 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Stir the first three ingredients with ice. Strain into a coupe or martini glass that has been rinsed with absinthe. Squeeze the orange peel shiny side down to release the oils. Enjoy!
