About This Episode

Concocted at the famed Carousel Bar in New Orleans, the Vieux Carré is a sophisticated and classic cocktail that evokes the spirit of the French Quarter. Fans of a Manhattan or brandy old-fashioned will find much to love about the Vieux Carré. Chicago bartender and Louisiana native Laura Kelton shows us how.
