Boulevardier


Ingredients

1½ oz Bourbon Whiskey
1 oz Sweet Vermouth
¾ oz Campari

What To Do

Combine all ingredients. Stir. Strain into a chilled rocks glass and garnish with an orange peel. I like to pour mine over a single large ice cube. Release oils from the orange peel and rub around the rim. Serve.

A Few Words

The Boulevardier (pronounced Bul-leh-var-dee-ay) is basically a Negroni with whiskey instead of gin. The drink is credited to Harry McElhone from Harry’s New York Bar in Paris in 1927. It’s a wonderful drink. Most recipes call for equal parts of each ingredient but I like to make mine a little whiskey forward, especially if you’re using a good whiskey. And since I used Hudson Baby Bourbon, I wanted to highlight this incredible spirit. Bitter but smooth. So so good. Cheers!
