Very rarely, if not ever, can enjoying a cocktail and cupcake lead to winning a trip to New Orleans. In honor of Mardi Gras, the W New York - Downtown (123 Washington Street, New York, 646-826-8600, www.wnewyorkdowntown.com) will be serving the Taylor Bird Sazerac cocktail with a complementary Billy's Bakery King Cake cupcake on Tuesday, March 4. One lucky attendee who discovers the baby inside their cupcake will win a two night stay for two at the W New Orleans. If you can't make it to the W Downtown, you can still celebrate like you're in The Big Easy with the signature drink from W French Quarter's SoBou restaurant.

Taylor Bird Sazerac:

 • 1 oz. Cognac
 • 1 oz. Rye Whiskey
 • 1 barspoon Steen's Cane Syrup (note: can be substituted for extra-rich 3:1 Demerara Syrup)
 • 2 dashes Orange Bitters
 • 4 dashes Peychaud's Bitters
 • Absinthe Rinse
 • Lemon Twist for garnish

Directions: Rinse a chilled rocks glass with absinthe to coat. Stir the remaining ingredients in a mixing glass with cracked ice and strain into the rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon twist after expressing its oils over the drink.
