75 ml Rye Whiskey, 20 ml Simple Syrup, 4 dashes Orange Bitters, Blood Orange Liqueur, Orange Twist
Chill an Old-Fashioned glass by filling with ice and letting it sit whilst preparing the rest of the drink. In a separate mixing glass, muddle the simple syrup and orange bitters together. Add the rye whiskey to the bitters mixture and stir. Discard the ice in the chilled glass and rinse it with blood orange liqueur by pouring a small amount into the glass , swirling it around and discarding the liquid. Strain the whisky mixture from the mixing glass into the Old-Fashioned glass. Garnish with an orange twist.
The addition of the blood orange liqueur makes the Sazerac a more palatable option for the less experienced cocktail drinker.
