Do You du Monde?

by Scott Wagner

How to make a classic cocktail inspired by the Big Easy

A drink dreamt up by Andy Whitehead of @liqourary, the du Monde evokes the rich spirit of New Orleans through a decadent combination of bourbon, cognac, bitters, and a splash of Alpine liqueur. Think of it as the livelier cousin to the infamous Viex Carré. In other words … one and done.
