Recipe Corner: The Boulevardier

People call this a winter time Negroni. While this is basically the same recipe as the more known Negroni which includes gin instead of bourbon, the Boulevardier’s recipe was in print 20 years prior to the Negroni. I recommend a bourbon with a bit of a higher rye content such as Buffalo Trace, and an Italian sweet vermouth to hold up to the weight of the bourbon.

The Boulevardier

1.5 oz Bourbon
1 oz Campari
1 oz Italian Sweet Vermouth

Add ingredients to mixing glass. Add ice, stir, strain over fresh ice in your favorite cocktail glass. Add an orange slice for garnish.
