Vieux Carre

The Vieux Carre is a classic New Orleans cocktail, a product of combining cognac available in the French quarter with American rye to make a strong mixed drink. This photo was taken at Fiola, a great Italian themed restaurant in the District.
  • 1 1/2 oz. rye (Willet used)
  • 1/2 oz. cognac (Remy Martin VSOP used)
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth (Dolin used)
  • several dashes of Angostura bitters 
  • several dashes of Peychauds bitters
  • cherry
Combine all ingredients except cherry in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
