This cocktail was inspired by the classic Vieux Carre which referred to the historic area ("old square" or French Quarter) of New Orleans where it was created. We too live in an area rich in history along beautiful Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. What better way to pay homage to that beauty than create a cocktail worth sipping fireside with a lake view.



 ¾ oz Rye Whiskey
 ¾ oz Mr. Black Coffee Liqueur
 ¾ oz Sweet Vermouth
 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
 2 dashes Peychaud's Bitters
 ½ oz Cynar
