Cocktail recipes with the Cocktail Maven AZ! Today she makes us a Vieux Carre!



Check out the latest episode of 5-Minute Finds where Lisa, THE Cocktail Maven, shows us around the classic cocktail The Vieux Carre, as well as chatting about the best cocktail spots here in Phoenix and her love of good spirits. Cheers!

The Vieux Carré was first stirred to life at New Orleans’ legendary Carousel Bar at Hotel Monteleone in the 1930s. Like so many classic cocktails from that city, the recipe represents the crosscurrents of America at the time: brandy and liqueur from France, Italian vermouth, rye whiskey from just up the Mississippi and Caribbean bitters. The Vieux Carré is at once boozy, sweet, bitter and smooth—in other words, completely New Orleans.
