AKA:

Tequila Vieux Carré

Comment:

The sweet herbal punch you’ll recognise from the classic Vieux Carré but somehow given extra life and fresh vitality by the addition of a shot of tequila. I halved the amount of cognac and bourbon usually used in a Vieux Carré to make way for the shot of tequila. I also tried using añejo tequila as the only base spirit, but while this drink was good it was straying too far away from what’s recognisable as a Vieux Carré and my intention was to riff this drink rather than create something so different. (‘Plaza Antigua’ is Spanish for ‘Old Square’, while ‘Vieux Carré’ is in turn French for ‘Old Square’.)

Origin:

Created in February 2017 by yours truly (Simon Difford) at the Cabinet Room, London, England.
