Get Wilde

The weekend is beginning and it’s time to get wild. But this time with an ode to the 19th-century author and playwright Oscar Wilde, whose drink of choice was absinthe.

While it’s always good to try it in the original fashion, as Wilde himself would have done, here at the Last Drop we also serve it in the form of a Sazerac.

Originating in 1908 in New Orleans, the Sazerac is part rye whiskey, part absinthe, part bitters and simple syrup.

May the below recipe lead you to a safe, yet “wilde,” weekend. Cheers!

2oz bulleit rye

0.5oz simple syrup

24 drops peychauds bitters

┬áStir/ strain into absinthe rinsed rocks glass (or add a splash – 1/32oz – of absinthe)
