Martha Stewart Shares Her Favorite Mardi Gras Recipes on Conan

March 6, 2011 | By More

Martha Stewart certainly knew how to make an entrance this week when she visited Conan. After entering regally on a large Conan-ized Mardi Gras float, she shared her killer New Orleans style Gumbo recipe and made some Sazerac’s, a wild Mardi Gras drink.

Here’s Martha’s recipe for the perfect Sazerac:


  • 1 tablespoon Absinthe
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces rye whiskey, preferably Sazerac rye or Old Overholt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Simple Syrup
  • 4 to 5 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
  • 2 dashed Angostura bitters
  • 1 lemon twist, white pith removed, for garnish


  1. Pour Absinthe into a rocks glass; swirl to coat. Pour out any excess Absinthe; fill glass with ice to chill.
  2. Place rye, simple syrup, and bitters in a cocktail shaker; fill with ice. Cover and shake vigorously.
  3. Discard ice from rocks glass and strain rye mixture into glass. Rub rim of glass with lemon twist and add to cocktail; serve immediately.
