Courvoisier Cognac Vieux Caree Cocktail
The origins of the Vieux Carré come from New Orleans. The drink was invented in 1937 as a tribute to the diverse ethnic groups that made up the French Quarter at the time.
Ice: Cubed or a single block
Garnish: Lemon zest twist
40ml Courvoisier XO
20ml Maker’s Mark
30ml Sweet Vermouth
1 Dash Angostura Bitters
1 Dash Peychaud's bitters
Stir all the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and strain into an ice filled rocks glass
Super smooth and extra sweet Manhattan. The orange flavours of Courvoisier XO Cognac and the vanilla notes in Maker’s Mark Whiskey compliment the duck. The Benedictine and bitters cut through the black pudding richness.
