Best Sazerac in NOLA

ScarlettNola | Mar 27, 200907:28 AM     16

Lately it seems that all Sazeracs that I have ordered have been very low quality(I think they are using some sort of bottled bar syrup) and not necessarily using rye whiskey. Please let me know who makes the best old fashioned sazerac. In recent memory, Library Lounge did make a mean drink, but besides that, my experiences with most places have been poor or average at best. Needless to say, I am pretty excited about the Sazerac Bar reopening this summer. I am also interested to know if anyone is substituting absinthe for Herbsaint when making the drink? We recently went to an absinthe tasting session at Mortons and have become avid absinthe enthusiasts! We currently live in St. Louis and family is in NOLA and come home every 2-3 months. We will be back for French Quarter Fest and was just seeking some guidance on the best cocktails. Any thoughts or suggestions?
