Spirit-forward and bittersweet yet balanced and eminently drinkable. Reminiscent of an old-fashioned but with the option to enjoy as an aperitif.
Adapted from a recipe created in 2018 by Robbie Neskens at Bruut, Hasselt, Belgium. Robbie says, "This cocktail is a twist on the classic Vieux Carré. Vieux Carré and Vieille Place both have the same meaning: Old Square. With the difference Vieux Carré being masculine and Vieille Place feminine."
