the mid-city

1 oz Rye Whiskey (Sazerac)
1 oz Cognac (Pierre Ferrand Ambre)
1 oz Sweet Vermouth (Cocchi)
1/2 oz Bittermens Coffee Liqueur (Copper & Kings Destillaré)
2 dash Peychaud's Bitters
6 drop Bittermens Mole Bitters

Stir with ice, strain into a rocks glass, and garnish with a lemon twist.
Two Wednesdays ago, I spotted a recipe on Kindred Cocktails created by Avery Glasser that he posted on the Bittermens website called the Mid-City. On the Bittermens site, he described how it was his riff on the Vieux Carré named after the neighborhood in New Orleans that inspired him to created their New Orleans Coffee Liqueur. Once prepared albeit with a different coffee cordial, the Mid-City showcased a lemon, Cognac, and coffee aroma. Next, the vermouth's grape filled the sip, and the swallow came through with rye, Cognac, coffee, and anise flavors with a chocolate and coffee roast finish.
