Comments

I'm drinking one of these right now, and I'd rather have an actual Sazerac. The lack of rye punch means the banana has nothing to bridge (banana liqueur is a lot like Cynar in my mind - a good harmonizer of flavors but difficult to make the centerpiece of a drink), and I'm really missing the absinthe + Peychauds accord. Thanks, Zachary
