Nelson Brothers Sazerac
This spirit-forward, flavorful cocktail is the perfect showcase for Nelson Brothers Bourbon. Plenty of bitters, lemon and an absinthe rinse are vital supporting roles in this classic Sazerac. Feel free to either discard the absinthe used for rinsing your class or add it to a sidecar to sip alongside your drink.

2 oz Nelson Brothers Classic Bourbon
.25 oz demerara syrup
2 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
1 dash Angostura Bitters
Chill a rocks glass by placing it in the freezer or filling it with crushed ice. While the glass is chilling, add bourbon, demerara syrup, and both bitters to a mixing glass. Express the oils from a lemon peel into the mixing glass and drop peel into the glass. Add ice and stir. Add two to three dashes of absinthe to your chilled rocks glass and turn to coat the inside of the glass. Shake out the excess absinthe and strain the cocktail into the seasoned, chilled rocks glass.
