Hailing from the eccentric cuisine and culture of New Orleans is this rich, strong and citrus cocktail known as the Vieux Carre that is baked with rye, bitters and a splash of lemon. The cocktail has reich French roots and a delicious taste thanks to a herbal honey liqueur base.

The Vieux Carre is a sophisticated drink that is served over the rocks and focuses on the combination of liquor and liqueurs to form an unforgettable taste rather than outside ingredients or garnishes. The beverage incorporates rye, sweet vermouth, cognac and a rich Benedictine honey and herb liqueur. Added to the mix are two lemon twists and bitters to create a pungent, sweet yet aromatic drink.
