How to make a Boulevardier

Want to learn how to make the Boulevardier?  If you enjoy a Negroni but prefer whiskey over gin, then the Boulevardier is right up your alley.  This bitter, potent, crisp cocktail can either be served up (in a martini or coupe glass) or on the rocks (in a rocks glass).  Today we are showing you how to make it on the rocks, which requires fewer tools and very little cleanup.  

Boulevardier on the Rocks

Campari is the featured liqueur in the Boulevardier, giving it a wonderful reddish hue.  Be prepared for a spirit-forward punch.  

Barware

We are building this drink directly in the serving glass, so we only need a few tools.  If you don’t have some of these tools, then check out our barware kits.  

  • Jigger – to measure the ingredients
  • Y-peeler – to create the garnish
  • Serving Glass – to serve the cocktail (for this cocktail, we recommend a rocks glass)

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Fill the serving glass with ice (we recommend one big cube, but several smaller cubes also works)
  2. Build the cocktail in the glass by adding the bourbon, Campari, and sweet vermouth directly to the serving glass
  3. Peel a swath of orange using your Y-peeler, and garnish your drink with the orange peel
  4. Serve and enjoy!
