About this Cocktail

I pondered how the Saratoga Cocktail from Jerry Thomas could be converted into the Vieux Carré by the addition of Benedictine and Peychaud's. I then wondered how it would be with the "Improved" treatment of Maraschino and absinthe. I dubbed this one after a Saratoga Springs hotel that opened around the time that the Improved style hit the scene.

Ingredients:
  • 1 oz Rye Whiskey
  • 1 oz Cognac
  • 1 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur
  • 1 scant barspoon Absinthe (under 1/8 oz)
  • 2 dash Angostura Bitters
Preparation:

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
