  • 1/4 cup rye whiskey
  • 1 teaspoon simple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon Peychaud's Bitters
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1/4 teaspoon anise liqueur
  • Lemon rind strip


  1. Stir together whiskey, simple syrup, bitters, and ice in a cocktail shaker until chilled. Coat inside of a chilled 3 1/2-ounce glass with liqueur; pour out excess. Rub lemon rind strip over rim, and place in glass. Strain whiskey mixture into prepared glass.
  2. Drop In: Tarragon. The dainty, aromatic plant and Herbsaint—a key ingredient in this Southern concoction—share sweet licorice undertones.
