The Creole Cocktail, which hails from New Orleans, can elicit strong and varying opinions when it comes to the drink’s formula. Although it has the same spirits and vermouth flavors as the Manhattan, Bénédictine Liqueur creates a unique cocktail with its herbal sweetness and maraschino accents. It brings a new dimension of flavor to a very familiar drink that many of us are familiar with. While the ratio used here is similar to the original recipe, a few adjustments were made to bring the quantity up to a modern-sized cocktail.
