About this Cocktail

One of the all-time classics from New Orleans. This version was shown to me by Kim Gooden. It uses more Benedictine than most but balances perfectly.

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 oz. rye whiskey
  • 3/4 oz. VSOP cognac
  • 3/4 oz. sweet vermouth (Carpano if you got it)
  • 1/2 oz. Benedictine
  • 4 dashes Peychaud's
  • 2 dashes angostura
Preparation:

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Add ice and stir. Serve in rocks glass with a slice of orange or lemon peel.
