Erskine Gwynne was the publisher of “Boulevardier”, a 1920’s Parisian magazine, and is credited with the creation of this simple yet elegant cocktail. A simple variation on the Negroni, it beautifully balances the Bourbon with sweet and bitter.
The recipe is suited to Bourbon but can easily be made with Rye which gives it a spicier quality. As with most cocktails, the better the quality ingredients you put in, the better the cocktail
- Bourbon – 1 and 1/2 parts
- Sweet Vermouth – 1 part
- Campari – 1 part
- Orange twist – To garnish
Add your Bourbon (or Rye) into a mixing glass, with ice, along with the Sweet Vermouth and Campari. Stir until well chilled and strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice.Garnish with an orange twist and enjoy!
What you’ll need to be a Boulevardier rockstar!!
