° The Boulevardier resembles the Negroni’s long lost bro. Using bourbon instead of gin, it is darker, richer and more robust while preserving the very same complex and bittersweet tastes of vermouth and Campari. This alcoholic drink dates to the 1920s, however after waning in appeal, it just recently experienced a revival in bars throughout the country– and for better reason.
