Standing proud amongst New Orleans original cocktails (like the Sazerac and the French 75) is the Vieux Carré, named after the city’s storied French Quarter. This classic cocktail combines rye, cognac, sweet vermouth, Benedictine and bitters to form a layered tapestry of flavors almost as charming and intoxicating as the Big Easy itself. Of course, there’s no need to travel all the way to Louisiana to celebrate this beloved Southern tipple—or any of the best cocktails from the Big Easy—just pop into one of the best bars in NYC and make like it's Mardi Gras in NYC at any time of the year with an authentic taste of the boozy bayou.
