Sazerac #2

This is a cocktail crafted by local master mixologists Matt & Beth Sorrell, who run the great company Cocktails Are Go!  They offer all kinds of services from guidance setting up a bar and specialty recipe development, to utilizing your old random bottles and tending bar at your event.  Check them out, they are great people who love what they do and are great at it!  This is one of the cocktails they created for the Cocktail Class we held at the distillery on April 10th, 2015.
