The Gotham is a cocktail created by Robert Hess as a way to expand the number of recipes that used Peach Bitters.

According to Robert:

The third of my peach bitters cocktails, this drink was patterned after the Sazerac, that classic New Orleans cocktail. I return it to (what some consider) it's brandy origins, and use peach bitters instead of Peychaud's. Since the peach bitters is sweeter than Peychaud's, and since the brandy is gentler than rye whiskey, I omit the traditional sugar cube that the Sazerac would call for. Also note that at no point in the process does ice touch any of the ingredients. This drink is intended to be in the form of a "Scaffa" and sipped more like you would sip a brandy, sitting in a comfortable chair, in front of the fire, with your trusty dog curled up at your feet.

  • 2 ounces brandy
  • 1/2 teaspoon absinthe or pastis
