Originally created in the 1930s as a substitute for absinthe, which is another important ingredient in a Sazerac, anise-based Herbsaint is named after the "Sacred Herb" (Herbe Sainte), but does not actually contain any wormwood. Try it in a Sazerac for sure, but don't snooze on another NOLA cocktail favorite, the Herbsaint Frappé.
