  1. Begin by chilling an old-fashioned glass by placing it in the freezer or filling it with ice water.
  2. In a separate mixing glass, mix simple syrup with Peychaud's bitters.
  3. Add the rye whiskey to the mixing glass and fill it with ice.
  4. Stir the mixture well until it's thoroughly chilled, about 30 seconds.
  5. Discard the ice from the chilled old-fashioned glass and rinse it with absinthe, swirling to coat the interior.
  6. Strain the chilled whiskey mixture into the prepared glass, and express the oils from a lemon peel over the drink by holding it over the glass and twisting it gently.
  7. Garnish with the lemon peel and serve.
