Cocktails in the "Old Square"

On one of our many trips to Dutch Kills, Heather and I decided to order a "bartender's choice." What he came up with was a Vieux Carre--a sweet and savory mix of Benedictine, cognac, sweet vermouth, rye whiskey and bitters. The name of this drink is French for "Old Square," a reference to the French Quarter of New Orleans. I'm not particularly a football fan (baseball is my game,) but since the Saints are in the Super Bowl and Heather has family in that part of the country, I figure now is as good a time as any to share this recipe with you fine people.
Easter Egg alert... If you look at the reflection in the window towards the end of the video, you can see Heather's reflection. We would have shot it again--but it's such a cute reflection...
