Ed. note: The recipe given in The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book differs from both the original and traditional New Orleans recipes. The former calls for cognac, Peychaud's Bitters and sugar. The latter calls for rye whiskey in place of the cognac, a rinse of absinthe, Peychaud's Bitters and sugar. ~ Hiram
