Brian and Jason can barely say "vieux carre," much less make one, so Trever is back to walk them through it.


To make a vieux carre, what you'll need to do is:

  • chill your glass
  • pour an ounce of rye whiskey into a yarai mixing glass
  • pour an ounce of sweet vermouth into the yarai
  • pour an ounce of cognac into the yarai
  • add 2 dashes of aromatic angostura bitters
  • add 2 dashes of aromatic peychaud's bitters
  • add large ice to the yarai and stir
  • empty your now chilled glass
  • strain the drink into your chilled glass
  • add a bar spoon of bénédictine
  • garnish with a lemon swath
  • drink
