In terms of alcohol content, there are plenty of drinks that will make you tipsy in two sips. For you curious booze lovers out there, we’ve even gone as far to search for the most alcoholic cocktail in the world.

If you’re in search of the most alcoholic mixed drink, the Aunt Roberta Cocktail is the grand prize winner. It contains absolutely no mixers. Just because this cocktail has the most alcohol doesn’t mean there aren’t other contenders, though. Another strong drink you’ve got to try is the Sazerac cocktail — the first runner-up on our list of deadliest cocktails.

Where did this boozy drink originate? According to the Sazerac webpage, the story of this drink leads us back to the creation of the first cocktail by Antoine Amedie Peychaud (creator of Peychaud’s bitters) in 1838 New Orleans. By 1850, this deadly drink, comprised of Sazerac French brandy and Peychaud’s bitters, became so popular — it became the first “branded” cocktail in America, or, some argue, the world. By the time it was first bottled, in 1933, it was made with American rye whiskey rather than brandy and a dash of absinthe.

The Sazerac adventure continued until 1940, when the recipe replaced the absinthe with the anise-flavored pastis Herbsaint. Then, in 2000, the official recipe was modified to include Sazerac’s Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey as the whiskey of choice.

Here is the official recipe for the Sazerac Cocktail.

If you were wondering what makes this cocktail so deadly, now you know. The ingredients include Sazerac Rye Whiskey (90 proof), comparable to your average bottle of liquor that is usually around 80 proof. Additionally, Herbsaint can be purchased at up to 120 proof, which is 60 percent alcohol. Luckily, the rest of the ingredients make it easy to get down. Check out one of our recipes to make your own.

There are many ways to make the Sazerac, but fair warning: this cocktail may be a one-way ticket to a massive hangover. Luckily, there are ways to avoid that.

9 Classic Cocktails You Should Know How to Make, According to Pros

Bartenders, bar managers, and chefs share the cocktails that drink-lovers should commit to memory.

Perhaps over the past year, when going to an actual bar hasn&apost always been possible, you&aposve filled out your home bar. You may have already mastered a few classic cocktails, but if you&aposre looking to round out your repertoire, try getting some inspiration from the pros. That way you can impress guests when it&aposs safe to have people over again (and you can impress yourself any night of the week).

We spoke with bartenders, bar managers, and chefs about the cocktails they think everyone should have in their repertoire. Here&aposs a great place to start:

Manhattan

"It is such a great classic with three simple ingredients. However, most people just don&apost get it right. Some shake it when it should be stirred and some others can&apost get the specs right. When it comes to making a great cocktail, measuring is very important." — Roberta Scampoli, Bar Manager at Dirty Habit DC

Daiquiri

"I would definitely say you&aposve got to learn how to make a classic daiquiri. I like mine with aged Jamaican rum. It&aposs delicious, easy, refreshing, and still sophisticated. The perfect warm weather drink for any occasion." — Gerald Addison, JBF Semifinalist and Co-Owner/Co-Executive Chef of Bammy&aposs

"For a lot of people, including myself as a kid, a sweet blended daiquiri, usually flavored (virgin strawberry daiquiri was my vacation drink of choice) is what people think of when they hear the name. But a true daiquiri is a balanced and dry cocktail that showcases rum, our favorite spirit at Rolo&aposs. The world of rum is wide and runs the gamut between dry, funky and grassy like the Agricole&aposs of Martinique and the Clairin&aposs of Haiti, all the way to the super-rich aged demerara Rums of Guyana that have brown sugar and molasses flavors. They&aposre also consistently the best value spirits out there. Some of the best Rums cost a fraction of a mid range whiskey. A daiquiri is just three ingredients: rum, fresh lime, and a touch of sugar to balance the citrus. The key is all in the finesse and balance and that&aposs why it&aposs a great one to learn. At Rolo&aposs, we make our daiquiri with a house rum blend that combines a whole range of rums to create a kaleidoscope of flavors, paired with just enough turbinado sugar syrup to balance the lime flavor. You can play with the styles of rum forever. If you&aposre using a richer sweeter rum, cut back on the sugar. If you&aposre using a dry, grassy rum blend, maybe use a touch more sugar to balance." — Ben Howell, beverage director and partner at Rolo&aposs in Queens, NY
