Snackshot of the Day: Sazerac Rye

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

Sazerac Rye from Buffalo Trace Distillery in Kentucky.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of Sazerac Rye from Buffalo Trace Distillery. The sazerac is a classic New Orleans cocktail that came from the Sazerac Coffee House that used to serve rye with Peychaud’s bitters. The Sazerac Rye has aromas of anise, vanilla, clove, and pepper. Try this rye with a little sugar, bitters, and lemon peel and pretend like you're sitting at that classic coffee house on Royal Street.
