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 and watch the video for our technique.
