I don’t know why its taken me so long to post this recipe, but this is my absolute go-to whiskey cocktail. If you’re a fan of the classic Negroni (traditionally made with Gin), then the Boulevardier will be right up your alley. In my opinion, this cocktail’s flavor profile goes a step further than a Negroni due to the use of [rye or bourbon] whiskey instead of Gin. I personally prefer a nice, spicy, barrel-proof rye whiskey like one from Willett Distillery – it really brings out the depth of flavors in the cocktail. Its a great balance of smokey, sweet and bitter – the perfect after-dinner cocktail. Its the kind of cocktail that is not only delicious, but will garner a nod of approval from your bartender. Cheers!
