A Sazerac at the Sazerac Bar
A Sazerac is composed of whiskey and absinthe, and nowhere sports classier digs for this signature cocktail than the Sazerac Bar of the Roosevelt Hotel in downtown New Orleans, where the low lights flow over heavy wood tables and the big leather armchairs are usually occupied by businessmen making world-altering deals. The Sazerac is a simple cocktail and one of America's oldest, with a bit of an exotic history since the US ban on absinthe was only recently lifted. Now that it's all legal, NOLA visitors can sink into the soft leather chairs, order a Sazerac, and start planning their own world domination.
