SUNDAY SESH // VIEUX CARRÉ

SUNDAY SESH //  VIEUX CARRÉ

 

This Sunday Sesh we are raising our glasses to the Vieux Carré !

 

A good place to start with the Vieux Carre, perhaps, is how to pronounce it.  Although the name is French, the pronunciation most certainly is not.

This cocktail is pronounced ‘voo car-ray’.  In French, this means ‘Old Square’ or ‘Old Quarter’ which was the original name for New Orleans’ French Quarter.

The Vieux Carré is pure Old New Orleans and was invented at the city’s famed Carousel Bar in 1938. This cognac and rye whiskey cocktail packs a powerful punch and is delightfully complex.

 

 - So dust off that cocktail shaker and get in!

 

Ingredients:

 

  • ¾ oz. rye whiskey
  • ¾ oz. Cognac
  • ¾ oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1 barspoon Bénédictine
  • 2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters

     

    Method:

    • Combine ingredients in a mixing glass, and add ice.
    • Stir well, and strain into an ice-filled Old Fashioned glass.
    • Garnish with a Lemon peel or cherry!
    • Make another round and repeat!
