Review:

A Sazerac just isn't a Sazerac without dashes of bitters but beware: Peychaud's contains low amounts of caramel and Angostura Aromatic bitters contain sugar. So include these and your finished cocktail will have trace amounts of sugar.

The weight and flavour of the spirits in this cocktail are such that I defy anybody to call this out as being sugar free – or even very very low sugar.

History:

Adapted from the classic Sazerac by yours truly in January 2019.

Nutrition:

There are approximately 166 calories in one serving of Sazerac (no sugar & low-calorie).
