The Vieux Carré has been a favorite of most cocktail lovers visiting New Orleans, since Walter Bergeron first concocted this spirit-forward drink in the 1930s.

One of my favorite cocktails during the Great America Distillers Festival Cocktail Competition was the winner in the final round. All the winners from the day before had 15 minutes to pick two secret ingredients and have a cocktail ready for the judges.
