Vieux Carre Reviews

  • Buying all the ingredients for this really gave me a well-stocked bar The cocktail had a really complex flavor--like something youd get at a fancy cocktail bar, but it was very simple to make once I had all the ingredients. Strong, too

  • I wasnt able to follow the recipe exactly (used B&B instead of cognac and Benedictine in the suggested amounts, and couldnt locate Peychauds bitters), but it was a tasty drink nonetheless.

  • I think I was expecting more. It was nice.
