Summer Sazerac Cooler

March 23, 2012

Sazeracs are a traditional New Orleans cocktail, and this version is oh-so-refreshing as the temperatures outside rise.

These Summer Sazerac Coolers were a huge hit at Chef Bill’s Cajun Cooking Class Girls Night Out last week in La Cucina at the Market. 

The class sold out early, so if you missed your chance to attend, you can make your own Sazerac.  Chef Bill was kind enough to share his recipe….
