Courting Two Sisters Cocktail Recipe

Vicky Wasik

Bartender Steven Robbins of Midnight Cowboy in Austin, Texas, cringes at all the bottom shelf vermouths that bars use alongside fine spirits. He went as far as to smuggling better vermouth into Alabama where he used to work, but we'll keep that between us.

Vermouth stars in this cocktail that pays homage to The Court of Two Sisters Restaurant in the French Quarter of New Orleans.
