Interesting facts

The Sazerac is the official cocktail of New Orleans. It’s one of the oldest cocktails in the world. The recipe for the Sazerac has remained almost unchanged since it was invented.

History of the drink

The Sazerac is a classic cocktail that has been enjoyed by many for almost two centuries. Its oriGins are steeped in history with its creation dating back to the early 1800s in the vibrant city of New Orleans. The cocktail's oriGinal inventor was a pharmacist by the name of Antoine Amedie Peychaud. Peychaud is credited with creating the cocktail in his apothecary shop, where he mixed together Brandy, Absinthe, Sugar and Bitters to create a flavorful and aromatic drink.
The drink was initially served in a small, egg-shaped cup known as a coquetier, which later came to be known as a ‘cocktail’ glass. Peychaud's friends and patrons loved the cocktail so much that it became a staple at the city's most prestigious social gatherings. In fact, the Sazerac became so popular that it was eventually adopted as the official drink of New Orleans.
