This classic, historic beverage exudes sophistication; simple, yet distinctive. The Boulevardier dates back to the 1920s. It’s a close relative to the Negroni cocktail, but uses Whiskey instead of Gin.
Though this beverage almost faded during the mid-twentieth century, there’s been a enormous comeback in recent years due to the accessibility of the ingredients, easy to follow prep, and dynamic flavor profile.
The warmth of the whiskey combined with the zest of Campari creates a complex, rich flavor perfect for a Date Night In
Here’s what you need to make your Boulevardier:
- 1 1/4 oz Whiskey
- 1 oz Campari
- 1 oz Sweet Vermouth
- Garnish: Orange Twist (I wanted to use a dehydrated slice, since I haven’t brought those out in awhile, and they were also easily accessible).
Now here’s how to make it…
Combine all ingredients except garnish in a rocks glass filled with fresh ice and stir to combine. Garnish with your Orange Twist and voilà: A Boulevardier! Très chic!
