La Louisianne Cocktail

Matt Taylor-Gross

A seductively named drink built on rye, sweet vermouth, Benedictine, Peychaud’s bitters, and absinthe, the La Louisiane shares similar DNA to other New Orleans classics, but never made the same leap into the cocktail mainstream. It is the secret cocktail of New Orleans, and these days it’s starting to get its due.
