This 1930s New Orleans recipe is named after the city's French Quarter—it's a potent but smooth cocktail, just like the Crescent City.

3/4 oz. rye whiskey
3/4 oz. Cognac
3/4 oz. sweet vermouth

1 barspoon Bénédictine
2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
2 dashes Angostura bitters

Ice cubes

Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer

Glass: Old Fashioned

Garnish: cherry

Combine ingredients in a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir well, strain into an ice-filled Old Fashioned glass and garnish.
