Tales of the Cocktail – Monday Night – Update 1

And who would have thought I’d find Martin of Forbidden Island, Eric Seed of Haus Alpenz, and Matt of Rum Dood at the carousel bar? After some great conversation, a Vieux Carre, and a Pimm’s Cup, it is time for the good Penguin to get some sleep before the a.m. rum judging in the morning.

Vieux Carre

  • 1oz rye whiskey
  • 1oz cognac
  • 1oz sweet vermouth
  • 1t Benedictine
  • 2 dashes Peychaud bitters
  • 2 dashes Angostura bitters
  • lemon twist, for garnish

Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Squirt out all the lovely oils from the lemon peel.

To quote directly from Chuck Taggart, our resident New Orleans historian and author of The Gumbo Pages: “This drink was invented in 1938 by Walter Bergeron, the head bartender at the Monteleone Hotel in New Orleans, and is named after the French term for what we call “The French Quarter” … le Vieux CarrĂ© (“Old Square”). The Monteleone is one of the Quarter’s grand old hotels, and now features the marvelous Carousel Lounge, which is an actual revolving carousel — you sit, and it revolves around the bartenders (just slowly enough so that you only get dizzy from drinks, not the ride).”
