The Weekly Cocktail Recipe – Jack Daniel’s 150th Anniversary Champagne Sazerac
Iconic whisky distillery Jack Daniel’s celebrates its 150th anniversary this year, and to tie in with the occasion, Master Distiller Jeff Arnett has created a brand new expression.
A culmination of 150 years of making great whisky, Jack Daniel’s limited-edition 150th Anniversary expression is luxurious with sweet complexities of butterscotch and toffee joined by flavours of toasted oak and a smooth lingering finish. What’s more, to celebrate the milestone and the new release, Harvey Nichols stores across the country will offer a specially crafted Champagne Sazerac to toast the anniversary.
A perfect match, given that the Sazerac is one of the oldest cocktails, with over 200 years of history attached – the drink will be available at the Knightsbridge store’s Fifth Floor Bar (£11), the Fourth Floor Bar in Leeds and the Second Floor Bar in Manchester (£9). Alternatively, the luxurious cocktail can also be recreated at home by following the recipe below.
50ml Jack Daniel’s D150 Anniversary
15ml Champagne syrup
Peychaud’s bitters, a dash
Angostura bitters, a dash
Add the absinthe to a crushed ice filled Rocks/Old Fashioned glass and set to one side.
Add all other ingredients to a mixing glass and stir.
Discard crushed ice and absinthe from first glass and strain in stirred cocktail.
Garnish with lemon twist and serve.
Jack Daniel’s 150th Anniversary Tennessee Whiskey is available exclusively in-store and online at Harvey Nichols, priced at £150.
