The sazerac has always been one of those delicious classic cocktails that I just never made time for. Why? I really don't have a proper answer. However, while I was late night perusing liquor.com for new fantastic cocktails and twists on the classics, I found the Black Barrel Sazerac. Sounded good but I didn't have any absinthe on hand and it was 4 am. I had recently bought a bottle of Honest Johns Black Walnut Bitters and thought that the dark rum and black walnut if done right could be pretty amazing. Thus I present The Black Walnut Sazerac.
The Black Walnut Sazerac
1.5 oz Black Barrel Rum
1 tsp White crème de cacao
4 dashes Honest John Black Walnut bitters
