- 1 1/2 oz Rye
- 3 dashes Peychauds bitters
- 1 sugar cube
- splash (1/4 oz) Absinthe
Shake the Rye, bitters, and sugar cube with ice in a cocktail shake. Let sit. Pour the absinthe into an Old Fashioned glass. Tip it to coat the whole inside of the glass. Then strain the ice out of the mix and add it to the glass.
Old Fashioned (Angostura-type) Bitters
You can't get Peychaud's bitters anywhere else...nothing else compares. I think its one of the most versatile bitters there is. Is great as a digestif, too. I like it more than Underberg's as a digestif.
Among bitters, I first encountered Angostura, and that remains the standard. Peychaud's stands up well to it. Both have deep notes that defy easy analysis. I find a major tone of clove in Agostura, though, and predominant and fruity anise in Peychaud's. That much is a tie for me, but I know of people who wouldn't be attracted to the licorice flavor. And, although I understand the need to assert itself visually as well as in taste and scent, Peychaud's use of red #40 (E129) could be problematic for some. It doesn't bother me, but close family offers anecdotal evidence that it can have undesired effects on behavior.
(All you pharma folk, look it up and look for H-bonding sites. I'm just a computing guy, but it looks to me like some receptor somewhere just has to have a good match for it.)
All told, I like it. Some won't, and maybe some shouldn't, and I still like others better (and bitter). But I like it.

Yum. This is a great and classic bitters to give your cocktails a zing.Published 6 months ago by Crystal L. Wallace
I'm hooked on these bitters! Quite different from the ol' standard Angostura. These bitters impart an almost citrusy layer to a gin and tonic or Manhattan. Read morePublished 14 months ago by L. King
