Like Negronis? Then You’ll Love This Easy Summer Cocktail

June 20, 2014 | By | Comments (0)

In our house, the cocktail is king. Like many, we started stocking our bar when the cocktail revolution hit a decade ago. Couple that with watching Don Draper and Peggy Olsen imbibe on Mad Men for the last seven years…well, needless to say we probably indulge a little more than we should.

I tend to find a drink I like and keep it in rotation for a while. This month it’s the man-about-town: the Boulvardier. This very close cousin to the Negroni, simply sub rye for the gin, first appeared in Harry McElhone’s 1927 bar guide, Barflies and Cocktails.

Try it up or over ice. I sometimes add a small splash of soda water to make it last just a little longer. Here’s the super simple recipe; the liquor suggestions are just that, suggestions. If you have a favorite certainly sub it in, and let me know what you think!

1 ounce Rye whiskey (Old Overholt)
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce sweet vermouth (Carpano Antica)
Orange wedge, for garnish
