It's cold out there. Given weather like this, I tend to gravitate towards cocktails that are stirred and boozy -- at least I'll be warm on the inside. If you're looking for an alternative to an Old Fashioned, try the Vieux Carré, a classic cocktail from New Orleans.

Vieux Carré
.75 oz Rye whiskey
.75 oz Cognac
.75 oz Sweet Vermouth
1 tsp  Bénédictine
2 dashes Peychaud’s Bitters
2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Add all the ingredients to a rocks glass. Fill with ice and stir.
