New Orleans comes to Denton

Recently I had the idea to go around the bars in Denton and ask the bartender what he or she would recommend. The first Denton bar I did this in was at Paschall Bar above Andy’s on the Denton Square.

The night I visited the bar the drink of the night was the Vieux Carre. This drink originated in New Orleans’ Carousel Bar.

 

Paschall’s Vieux Carre

This is not a cocktail for lightweights. The cocktail is composed of rye whiskey, Cognac, Vermouth, Bénédictine and bitters.

The bartender first mixed the whiskey, Cognac and vermouth. Then he added the Bénédictine and bitters. He garnished the drink with a cherry.

This drink tastes of sophistication and the distinct mixture of flavors represent the sundry of joy that is New Orleans.
