About Crafty Cocktail’s Sazerac Rye Cocktail Kit
While there have been many cocktails in the Crafty’s repertoire that take their cue from the classics, the entire box for this month, BIG EASY, is nothing but. The Southern United States is the birthplace of many amazing and interesting cocktail recipes, and culinary techniques in general, with Sazerac rye and Peychaud’s bitters being chief among them. With such a rich chronicle of cocktail greatness, we felt it was time to pay homage to this incredible region and its long-standing cocktail history with a box that celebrates not only the southern spirit but many of the other recipes and ingredients that can be found there.
Sazerac Rye is a truly unique spirit, as it has a legacy that resides deep within North American cocktail culture, being a mainstay whiskey in bars and restaurants of the South since the mid-1800’s, and has a complex, and truly amazing profile that is bursting with flavor, yet remarkably smooth.
Riding sidecar to Sazerac rye is Peychaud’s bitters, an ingredient whose history is so closely tied to this rye, and the Sazerac cocktail itself, that, for a bartender, it is hard to mention one without instantaneously thinking about the other.
This box incorporates a ton of fun, unique and hard-to-find elements with these long-time partners in cocktail crime, taking classic recipes and ingredient combinations and giving them that patented Crafty’s flair. Recipes like the Rootbeer Sazerac, which seamlessly incorporates original recipe rootbeer ingredients like sassafras, caramel and wintergreen into a ‘simple’ classic Sazerac recipe. The Cheasapeakean Ramos Fizz, which plays on the ubiquitous New Orleans recipe with intriguing ingredients like Ruby Fassinola syrup, muddled peach and Old Bay seasoning. Or simply taking a page from the book of Southern hospitality with the Streetcar Named Crafty’s, welcoming you into its humble flavor aboded with homebrewed sweet tea, lemon curd and the zip of pure citric acid.
This box blurs the lines between modern and classic. Its important to give respect where it is due, but also, we must always be moving forward in our quest for amazing cocktails. So check out this month’s Crafty Cocktails box, BIG EASY, and get better acquainted with the flavors and history of the birthplace of modern cocktail culture, the Southern United States.
