That sounds good. Is that a classic cocktail or your own twist on the Manhattan? I know neither the original source of the cocktail nor the date of creation. I can assure you that it is delicious. Upon reading my recipe, I see that I left out a key ingredient: Benedictine. The true Vieux Carre recipe: 1oz rye whiskey 1oz brandy 1oz sweet vermouth 0.5oz Benedictine 1 dash Angostura bitters 1 dash Peychaud's bitters Stir with ice, then strain. Garnish with 2 fabbri cherries.
