History:
In the late 18th century, a pharmacist, Antoine Amedee Peychaud invented this cocktail in New Orleans' famous French Quarter where he owned his shop. The original cocktail was a concoction of brandy, absinthe and bitters. Some historians say the term 'cocktail' came from a tiny French egg-cup called "coquetier" that was used to serve Sazerac cocktail.
