Put a twist on a Sazerac with Habondia Peach Brandy

The second spirit from the local makers of Big O Ginger Liqueur, Habondia Peach Brandy bursts with ripe peach, caramel, cinnamon, clove, allspice, vanilla, honey and white flowers. Savor it neat, on the rocks or in a Sazerac: In an ice-filled shaker, stir 1 ounce Habondia, 1 ounce rye, ½ ounce simple syrup, 4 dashes Peychaud’s bitters and 4 dashes Angostura bitters for 45 seconds. Strain into an absinthe-washed highball glass and garnish with a lemon twist.
