The Sazerac is a classic cocktail that has a rich history and is easily one of the most fascinating cocktails ever created. It was first made in the early 1800s in New Orleans, Louisiana, at a bar called the Sazerac Coffee House. Over time, the Sazerac cocktail recipe has evolved with various delicious versions available to sip. The Cherry Sazerac is a delightful twist on this timeless cocktail. At its core, the Cherry Sazerac whisky cocktail is a blend of rich, smooth, and smoky Johnnie Walker Black Label whisky, brandy, maraschino cherry juice and bitters.
