Cocktails at Home: Vieux Carré

Our riff on this classic, short serve is super-smooth and sweet. First mixed in 1930s New Orleans, the cocktail takes its name from the city’s French Quarter (vieux carré is French for “old square” ). While it’s usually made with bourbon or rye whiskey, this version is inspired by our favourite Highland single malt Scotch: Glenmorangie’s delicate, rounded Original. Combined with Hennessy cognac’s intensely fruity V.S, and two different types of bitters for delicious depth, our Vieux Carré is one to be sipped slowly and savoured.
