Scotch Sazerac

Scotch Sazerac
The Sazerac, which dates back to the 1850s, was originally made with a cognac base, but when France suffered the phylloxera epidemic that decimated her vineyards in the late nineteenth century, Americans started using straight rye whiskey instead. An just because SIA is such a great substitute for Rye cocktails- here is a SIA Scotch Sazerac!

  • 2 oz SIA Scotch Whisky
  • ¼ oz Simple Syrup
