New Orleans Vieux Carre Recipe
Invented in the Big Easy, the Vieux Carre is a classic cocktail. Sweet and bitter with a lovely smoothness, this cocktail is meant to be savored slowly.
Servings: 1 Serving
- 3/4 oz rye whiskey
- 3/4 oz Cognac
- 3/4 oz Sweet vermouth
- 1/2 oz Bénédictine
- 4 dashes aromatic bitters Angostura & Peychaud's
- maraschino cherry or lemon peel for garnish
Measure out all the ingredients (apart from the garnish) in a pitcher.
Add the ice and stir briskly till blended.
Strain into a cocktail glass or an old-fashioned glass. Make a small vertical incision at the bottom of the cherry. Place it over the rim of the glass and serve!
