The Vieux Carre cocktail is a 1930’s classic from New Orleans! It’s strong and sippable, featuring rye whiskey, Cognac and vermouth.


  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) rye whiskey
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) Cognac
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 teaspoon Benedictine
  • 1 dash Peychaud bitters
  • 1 dash Angostura bitters
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice!)
  • For the garnish: Luxardo cherry or cocktail cherry


  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail mixing glass (or any other type of glass). Fill the mixing glass with 1 handful ice and stir continuously for 30 seconds until very cold.
  2. Add ice to a lowball glass and strain in the drink. Garnish with a cocktail cherry.
