Huge congratulations to NOLA who have been awarded the prestigious ‘Seal of the Sazerac’ from the New Orleans Culinary Preservation Society.
NOLA will be the first bar outside of North America to receive the award for serving the cocktail at an incredible standard and promoting the Sazerac and culture of New Orleans.
“For us this is an unbelievable achievement. When we put the cocktail program together it was important to us that we honour the rich history of cocktails from the city of New Orleans, so for the NOCCPS to recognise us as the first bar outside of North America to receive this honour is something that our whole team are very proud of” says Dan Priseman, Founding Partner of NOLA.
As Duke’s Bar is known for their Martinis we look forward to welcoming guests to NOLA to try the Sazerac, officially the most authentic and perfect example to be found outside North America.
So what makes the perfect Sazerac? Michelle Dunnick from Tales of the Cocktail has the answer:
“The perfect Sazerac contains all of the major elements (spirit, bitters, sweetness, anise) but is well-balanced, includes a lemon garnish, uses a chilled glass that’s been rinsed first with an anise-flavored liquor (herb saint or absinthe) and contains Peychaud’s bitters and rye whiskey. The no-nos? Serving the drink in a martini glass, using a lemon wedge garnish, shaking the cocktail or serving it on the rocks”.
Now you can find out what the perfect Sazerac tastes like, see you at NOLA!
