The Vieux Carré is named for the French Quarter in New Orleans. It’s a spirits-driven Cognac cocktail we’ve made with D’USSE. Bénédictine, a liqueur you probably don’t own, is a sophisticated addition to your home bar. It smells like a field of flowers. First produced by Benedictine monks in the 16th century, it will add a sweet, aromatic flavor to your cocktails and impress even the snobbiest of friends. Created in the Big Easy in the 1930s, Peychaud’s Bitters are lighter, sweeter, and have a more floral aroma than Angostura.
