We're indebted the Cocktail Trading Company's Elliot Ball for bringing this cocktail to our attention and relaying the following story behind its creation and name.

"Several years ago, a good friend and excellent bartender, known here simply as 'JP' after perhaps one too many Sazeracs, described his sexual orientation as being "75/25" - that for every three encounters with men, he needed to maintain balance by bedding a lady. His friends serving him, much to his regret, were perfectly sober and thus able to remember this staggeringly obnoxious description of his sexual proclivities, and thus dedicated to him the 75/25 Sazerac (three parts fruity, one straight). It has been shortened simply to the JP Sazerac, a loving commemoration of a good friend's appalling way with words. It's also a frankly delicious Sazerac."

The history of the Sazerac cocktail can be found on our Sazerac cocktail page.
