Making The Oldest Cocktail In The World


As the days grow shorter and cooler, the need arises to indulge in warmer complex flavours. And one of the best blends to achieve this is the iconic Sazerac; allegedly the world’s oldest cocktail.

This classic whiskey cocktail was invented in the mid-1800s at the Sazerac Coffee House in New Orleans. It is delicately laced with aromas of citrus and subtle notes of spices – and is the perfect autumn drink.
