A working 25-seat carousel isn’t the only attraction in this bar. Since the spot opened in 1949, a number of cocktails, including the Goody (a hurricane-esque rum-and-juice drink), were invented here, but the most famous of all is this rye-based cocktail made with locally beloved Peychaud’s bitters. —Nora Horvath for Food Network Magazine



  1. Combine the Benedictine, cognac, rye, vermouth and both bitters in a short glass with ice; stir well.
  2. Garnish the drink with a lemon twist.
