rye whiskey

Vieux Carré

A Vieux Carré is a smart, fun & sophisticated cocktail. The kind of drink you want to mix up when you're trying to impress. Drink with class, this is one to sip with your pinky up. Oh, you fancy huh? 


Serving size: 1 stiff cocktail or 2 little tasters 

1 tsp Bénédictine (a delightful french herbal liqueur) 

3/4 ounce Rye Whiskey

1/2 ounce Cognac, as Busta Rhymes would say "pass the Courvoisier"

1/2 ounce Sweet Vermouth 

Dash of Peychaud's bitters

Dash of Angostura bitters 

Lemon twist 

Combine all liquid ingredients into a mixing glass, fill with ice & stir well. Strain into an old fashioned cocktail glass, trace the rim with a lemon peel and use for garnish. 

à votre santé!
