A New Orleans classic, the Vieux Carre is an interesting cocktail with layers of memorable flavors. Cognac combines with rye whiskey, sweet vermouth, Benedictine, and (again) both Angostura and Peychaud's bitters.
The complexity of the Vieux Carre makes it a memorable cocktail and it is yet another drink to show off your best brandies.
Recommended Brandy: Remy Martin VSOP Cognac (80 proof, $36)

Omaha's own, Charlie Yin (Hiro 88 & Local BP&K) turned me on to THIS particular cocktail a couple of years ago. Thanks to him, I ask bartenders to make it for me and they don't know what it is. Well now...they will. -montez
