There are few cocktails as enduring as the Manhattan.
The Vieux Carré is what it would look like if the Manhattan had an eccentric, worldly, New Orleanian great aunt.
It’s rich and spirit forward with a split base of rye and cognac.
The Boulevardier is a regular around these parts.
It’s a drink that straddles the line between Negroni and Manhattan.
It’s been too long since I’ve shared a cocktail recipe around here. This one, with Cynar (pronounced chee-nar), Cognac, and Punt e Mes, is a keeper.
A few years ago, bartenders went crazy for barrel-aging cocktails.
