Vieux Carré Absinthe Supérieure
Vieux Carré Absinthe Supérieure

Vieux Carré can be mixed with or without sugar, although we feel balance is best achieved without sugar. We recommend 3 parts water to one part Vieux Carré when diluting, although that too should be left up to the individual. We recommend first trying Vieux Carré as 3:1, then 4:1, as you will notice different herbal complexities. Our absinthe was specifically designed to work solo or as part of a jazz quartet with other premium cocktail ingredients. Scroll down to view some Classic and Signature Cocktail recipes.

CLASSICS

Traditional French Absinthe

Pour 1.25 - 1.5 oz of Vieux Carre into an appropriate glass. Place a sugar cube atop a flat, perforated spoon that rests on the rim of the glass. Using the sugar and spoon are optional. Slowly drip 4-5 oz of ice cold water on top of the sugar cube (or directly into the glass), which slowly dissolves into the Absinthe. The cold water causes Vieux Carre to louche into an opalescent cloud as the herbal essences emerge from the absinthe.

Death in the Afternoon

1.5 ounces Vieux Carre absinthe

2 ounces Rye Whiskey

3 dashes Peychaud's Bitters

1/2 teaspoon sugar

Shake with ice and strain into an old-fashion glass (or an egg-cup), garnish with lemon peel.
