How to make:

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.

13 fl oz La Fee Parisienne absinthe
1 23 fl oz Bourbon whiskey
14 fl oz Sugar-free sweetener
3 dash Peychaud's or other Creole-style bitters (optional)
1 dash Angostura or other aromatic bitters (optional)
