Ciudad ViejaCiudad Vieja

Adapted from a recipe by Alex Negranza, Liberty Bar, Seattle

“This drink was inspired by the Vieux Carre.  I had a customer who loved them and Sazeracs, but they wanted something more viscous but still spirit forward,” Alex Negranza.

30 ml (1 oz) Laird’s Bottled in Bond applejack

22.5 ml (3/4 oz) dry curacao

15 ml (1/2 oz) Ron Zacapa 23

7.5 ml (1/4 oz) Bénédictine

2 dashes Creole bitters*

1 lemon twist, as garnish

Build in double old-fashioned glass.  Stir until well chilled, and add the garnish.

*Substitute Peychaud’s if Creole bitters aren’t available.

gaz sez:  My style of drink, this is.  I’ll take one as an after-work drink, and another as a nightcap, thank you.  I could drink these all night, if truth be told.
