Nouveau Carré

from PDT

  • 1.5 oz. Ocho Añejo Tequila
  • .75 oz. Lillet Blanc
  • .25 oz. Bénédictine
  • 3 dashes Peychaud's Bitters

Stir with ice and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a lemon twist.

This tequila-based homage to the Vieux Carré cocktail was created in the wake of Hurricane Katrina to raise awareness of New Orleans's struggle to recover and rebuild. —Jonny Raglin, San Francisco, 2005
