The Vieux Carré Cocktail

The Vieux Carré is a piece of the craft cocktail spectrum that comes straight from New Orleans. And it contains a few of the hallmarks of NOLA cocktails, like cognac, Peychaud’s bitters and using quite a few bitters in general. The drink has quite a few ingredients for a cocktail.

But that’s OK. None of them are too hard to find and the end result is certainly worth it.
