Banana Sazerac (Photo and recipe by Jordan Hughes, @HighProofPreacher )
  • 2 parts Heaven’s Door Straight Rye Whiskey
  • 1 tsp banana simple syrup
  • 2 dashes Blackstrap bitters
  • 2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
  • Absinthe rinse

Using an atomizer, coat the inside of a rocks glass with absinthe & set aside. Combine whiskey, syrup & bitters in a mixing vessel & stir with ice until chilled. Strain into absinthe rinsed glass. Take a small slice of banana & skewer on a cocktail pick. Cover with raw sugar & brûlée with a culinary torch until caramelized, then serve on the rim of the finished cocktail.
