Boulevardier Cocktail - He Spoke Style
Boulevardier Cocktail - He Spoke Style


February 27th, 2014

Over the years, I’ve acquired some skill as a home mixologist. I started by mixing the classics and eventually ventured into creating some original recipes. One of my favorite classic cocktails is the Negroni—equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth—which I became fond of making on a nightly basis. However, when I got my hands on a copy of this book and found a Negroni variation that used bourbon in place of gin called The Boulevardier, I was hooked. What’s your favorite cocktail?

The Boulevardier
1.5 oz. Bourbon
.75 oz. Campari
.75 oz. Sweet Vermouth

Combine the bourbon, Campari, and sweet vermouth in a mixing glass. Stir with ice and strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a cherry.

Thanks for reading.

Stylishly Yours,

He Spoke Style
