Nouveau Carré

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Absinthe Brasserie & Bar • San Francisco

This riff on the classic rye-based Vieux Carré cocktail is mixologist Jonny Raglin's tribute to New Orleans: "I chose an aged tequila to replace the rye because it has a spicy backbone that can stand up to the sweet Bénédictine and Lillet."

  1. Ice
  2. 1 1/2 ounces añejo tequila
  3. 1/2 ounce Bénédictine (golden herbal liqueur)
  4. 3/4 ounce Lillet Blanc
  5. 5 dashes of Peychaud’s Bitters
  6. 1 lemon twist
  1. Fill a pint glass with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the lemon twist and stir well. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with the lemon twist.
