Want to spice up your sazerac? Take after The Daily's cocktail director Naren Young and add chamomile for a light, aromatic cocktail. The sazerac is the official drink of New Orleans, and is made with rye whiskey or cognac. But you don't have to wait until winter again to drink your heavier spirits, Young says — the twist on the sazerac is a lighter cocktail perfect for summer months. Young adds absinthe for the anise character, both rye whiskey and cognac, and chamomile tincture for flavor, and voilà — your summer cool-off drink.
