This New Orleans’ classic straddles the delicious space between an Old Fashioned and a Manhattan: rich and bold, yet not heavy. Typically, this drink is made with a combination of Angostura and Peychaud's Bitters, the latter of which adds anise-minty notes. That’s a delicious choice, but I’ve come to favor the brightness orange bitters add.
