This drink is a little bit of a mystery. Mainly because Todd never gave me the exact measurements.  It looks tasty, I'm not sure how much of what.  But please experiment, and if you find a good ratio, let me know. 

Sazerac

A cross of Star Wars and Game of Thrones, this week we discuss Saga, from Brian K. Vaughn, and Fiona Staples.  A space opera that tackles everything from war, to parenthood.


1 Sugar Cube
2 1/2 oz. Rye Whisky
2 dashes Peychaud's bitters
1 dash Angostura Bitters
Absinthe
Lemon Peel
Old-Fashioned glass
  1. In an Old-Fashioned glass (not a mixing glass; it's part of the ritual), muddle a sugar cube with a few drops of water.
  2. Add several small ice cubes and the rye whiskey,* the Peychaud's bitters, and the Angostura bitters.**
  3. Stir well and strain into a second, chilled, Old-Fashioned glass in which you have rolled around a few drops of absinthe (no substitute really works, but you can try either a mix of Pernod and green Chartreuse, or Absente) until its inside is thoroughly coated, pouring off the excess.
  4. Garnish with a twist of lemon peel (some insist that this be squeezed over the drink and discarded; Handy wasn't so picky).

Bryan picked this drink cause the name sounded like a character or creature that could be in Saga.
