4: The French Connection - Sazerac & Co
New Orleans has always been a true bastion of drinking culture, fully embracing its French roots for some deep and delicious cocktails that call for a variety of French and American ingredients. Their spin on the old fashioned, the Sazerac, calls on Absinthe and Peychaud’s bitters to up the menace, and the Vieux Carré adds brandy and herbal Benedictine to a basic Manhattan for a complex sipper. Another couple of classics originally from Paris, the French 75 and Chrysanthemum, add some continental class to this collection of doozies.
