Vieux Carré Cocktail
This is the “Vieux Carré” made of rye, Cognac, sweet vermouth, Bénédictine and bitters. It’s one of those classic cocktails that many have tried or heard of, but it’s still a very interesting and tempting drink.
It gets a dark rich color from the sweet vermouth and the Peychaud’s bitters, so contrasting with a yellow lemon twist and a big piece of ice is nice when serving.
