The Sazerac is an unusual old-school drink with the fine distinction of The Official Cocktail of New Orleans. No garnish, no ice, no citrus juice -- but deeply refreshing and smooth. It was originally made with Cognac, but since 1870 or so, rye whiskey has been the standard. And that's a good thing: Rye's peppery intensity gets a serious flavor going up front where Cognac might just lay back and take it. Peychaud's Bitters and Herbsaint are two New Orleans-local ingredients that give this drink its one-of-a-kind character.

Add remaining ingredients to a mixing glass or shaker. Add a mix of ice cubes and cracked ice to cover well above the liquid level. Stir well to blend and chill, then double-strain (to catch small bits of ice) into the prepared, chilled glass. Pinch a lemon zest over the drink to express oils onto its surface, then rub the zest around the glass rim to coat. Discard the zest.
