Named after New Orleans’s French Quarter (a.k.a. Vieux Carré), this drink is as representative of the city as the neighborhood. And, like the French Quarter, it’s strong, fun, and a little bit crazy.

What to buy: Bénédictine D.O.M., a golden liqueur first produced by Benedictine monks in the 16th century, adds a sweet, aromatic flavor to cocktails. It can be found at well-stocked liquor stores.


Combine the whiskey, Cognac, vermouth, Bénédictine D.O.M., and both bitters in a cocktail mixer, then fill with ice. Stir until chilled through, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon twist and serve.
