Happiest Hour: Vieux Carré

If you've never heard of the Vieux Carré, think of the classic New Orleans cocktail as the smoother older brother of the Manhattan: with cognac, a bar spoon of Bénédictine, and two different types of bitters, it's smoother and more sophisticated while still packing a punch. We think the best way to serve it is over a single giant ice cube; the ice melts slowly, allowing one to linger over each glass and savor the drink's underlying complexity. To make this your signature drink, print out the recipe [1] and watch the video for our technique. On Brandi: Edward Avedis.
