365 Things to Do in Memphis #79: Have a Sazerac at the Cove
If you could pack a vacation to New Orleans into a cocktail glass, you'd have the Cove's Sazerac.
The Cove makes their handmade Sazeracs by rinsing the inside of a glass with Absinthe, then pouring in some rye whiskey, bitters and sugar. It's garnished with a little curl of orange peel.
If you're not into tasting the drink in your drink, this Sazerac isn't for you. It's as bittersweet as a box full of letters and the Absinthe gives it a light licoricey aftertaste.
