How to Make a Vieux Carré

Like Manhattans? You’ll probably love the Vieux Carré – it’s a more nuanced and herbal cocktail, but similar in style and presentation.

The name of this cocktail translates to the “Old Square”, referring to where it was originally created, the French Quarter in New Orleans. Essentially a Manhattan that’s had it’s ingredients split, the Vieux Carré is both smooth but also very nuanced, featuring an herbal focus thanks to the amazing combination of sweet vermouth and benedictine.
