Hot Sazerac


I adapted this Southern Cocktail to suit the long Boston winters, replacing the licorice liquor rinse with a star anise simple syrup. If using a higher proof rye, like Old Overholt, more bitters will help balance out the flavor.

What you will need

2 tablespoons rye whiskey (per glass)

6 dashes Peychaud bitters (per glass)

1-2 dashes Angostura bitters (per glass)

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon water

2 star anise pods

1 lemon twist
