About The Sazerac® Cocktail

To cocktail enthusiasts everywhere, the Sazerac Cocktail has long served as the full-bodied embodiment of New Orleans history in a glass. Only since June 23, 2008, was it made official when the state of Louisiana made The Sazerac Cocktail the Official Cocktail of New Orleans.

Join us for a jubilant celebration as we salute this spirited milestone during Sazerac Cocktail Week, June 21st-27th, 2021.

The Sazerac Cocktail gained fame in New Orleans in the 1850s, and to this day is enjoyed and enamored all around the world. In the Sazerac House, the Sazerac has found its grandest home yet, steps from where the Sazerac Cocktail became a beloved favorite. Now’s your chance to revel in the history and raise a glass to the Sazerac Cocktail.

Make plans to join the party. Reserve your Sazerac Cocktail Week tour and tasting benefiting New Orleans Musicians’ Assistance Foundation.

Thoughtful ingredients, multiculturalism and the ritual of crafting a Sazerac create the cocktail that has defined New Orleans’ spirited history since the 1800s. When you combine Peychaud’s Bitters, sugar, Sazerac Rye Whiskey, Herbsaint, and a twist of lemon, you end up with New Orleans history in a glass. Whether you’re making one at home or ordering it at your favorite bar, we hope you'll toast with friends to the time-honored tradition of The Sazerac. #sazeraccocktailweek #sazerachouse #sazeraccocktail #neworleans #cocktailhistory #BizNewOrleans #sponsored ...
