About the Boulevardier Cocktail
The Boulevardier is a sophisticated, classic cocktail with a rich history dating back to the 1920s. It's akin to a Negroni but swaps out gin for bourbon or rye whiskey, lending it a warmer, more robust flavour. This cocktail balances the depth of whiskey, sweet vermouth's herbal sweetness, and Campari's distinctive bitter notes. Typically served on the rocks, the Boulevardier is admired for its complex mix of flavours, making it a favourite among those who enjoy a nuanced drink.
