For my birthday, my father bought me a nice cocktail shaker and some Peychaud's bitters. A month and a half later I finally have some rye whiskey and some time to mix a Sazerac
This drink predates pretty much every other cocktail in existence - its current recipe probably came into existence right after the Civil War. It's still an awesome mix of flavors today. I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
