The Sazerac

In 1838, Antoine Peychaud, owner of a New Orleans apothecary, treated his friends to brandy toddies of his own recipe, which included his own bitters made from a secret family recipe. Made using an egg cup as a jigger, then known as a coquetier, from which the word cocktail is derived — so was born the world’s first original cocktail. You can find the Sazerac at the Avalon Hotel Beverly Hills, or you can make your own chamomile Sazerac, a sure favorite at your Repeal Day parties.
