How To Make A Boulevardier

This Prohibition-era cocktail is very similar to a Negroni, but it's made with whiskey instead of gin! The Boulevardier was created in the 1920s by Erskine Gwynne, an American living in Paris.

As its cousin, the Negroni, has soared in popularity over the past decade, the Boulevardier is also getting fresh attention — and deservedly so. The cocktail is a delicious, richer and more complex spin on a classic. The Boulevardier may not be a household name yet, but if its ranking on the list of the globe’s most popular cocktails is a testament to its fame, it’s bound to become one soon.
