Sazerac.

Use my tips above to make it perfect. Mine are quite sweet, and the Absinthe smell actually covers up the whiskey flavor on your tongue. You don't feel it until it gets to your throat, which I think is a quality of a good Sazerac.

Word. I saw you mention it in this thread and I've been wanting to try it. What's holding me back is my inability to locate any absinthe, I have everything else. Are the absinthe substitutes just as good or should I hold out for the real thing?

Pastis works. It's typically labeled "Pernod" (which is a distillery in France). That would be the best substitute.

Oh, I picked up a 4 Roses Single Barrel for cocktails and a little less aggressive whiskey for my friends.

I got it from the only place I knew of that had any stock and that is because they called me when it came in. They tried to sell it to me for $75 a bottle and I said they were crazy and started to walk when the dude asked me to come back and sold it to me for an acceptable price. I wouldn't be surprised if it has sold out at that price though. Dirty John's had 60 bottles Tuesday morning, opened at 7:30 and sold out before 9am!

On the Sazerac, have you tried it with Pernod instead of absinthe? Not sure where I would get absinthe unless it is readily available now. I have both types of bitters though so that is all I need. I made my own simple syrup from some organic cane sugar so it is dark but still tasty.

I actually got my last bottle from John's as well. If you can get it, please let me know.

I can readily buy absinthe, so I normally use it. But you can use pastis.

Note on Pernod: It's a distillery, not a type of alcohol. In fact, Parnod Fils is one of the oldest reputable absinthe makers in the world. Their stuff now isn't good, put a bottle of Jade PF 1901 is a pretty fantastic recreation of their original blends.

The darker color from organic sugar would really make the drink pop I think.

I used to drink 1/2 glasses an evening (before going out to the bars) every night when I lived in Australia. I was a bit of a drunk over there though :).

I've just started getting into bourbon myself. I've been drinking my other whiskeys with just a tiny bit of water but I've found that I need a bit more water for Maker's to get it to really come alive. Is that normal for bourbon or more specific to Maker's, which I noticed is a bit higher proof than most other whiskeys I've had? I know I could (and will) just experiment myself, but I'm interested to hear what more experienced bourbon drinkers think.
