Vintage Cocktails #55: The Vieux Carré

This last Monday, at Tales of the Cocktail Vancouver, I attended several sessions, one of which was: Famous New Orleans Cocktails. Our next cocktail is one of these classic New Orleans treasures. Originally the signature drink of the Hotel Monteleone, this is yet another drink that for some reason or another faded off the map. There is reason to celebrate however, as it is once again being served at the Carousel Bar at the Hotel Monteleone.

The Vieux Carré
1 oz Rye Whiskey
1 oz Cognac
1 oz Sweet Vermouth
1/2 tsp Benedictine
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
2 dashes Peychauds Bitters
