Cocktail Club

The Boulevardier

This 1920s cocktail is a bourbon-based take on an even older classic: the Negroni.  It’s creation is ascribed to Erskine Gwynne, an American-born writer who founded a monthly magazine in Paris called Boulevardier, which appeared from 1927 to 1932.

  • Orange peel for garnish


  1. Add all ingredients to a cocktail mixing glass or other stirring vessel.
  2. Add ice.
  3. Stir for 30 seconds.

Pro Tip

When making citrus twists, a potato peeler will work in place of the handy-dandy channeling knives the pros use.
