Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Boulevardier

October 04, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There!

This week we are sharing a variation of the Negroni which swaps gin for bourbon and is called a Boulevardier. The Boulevardier hails from the 1920s, named by American born writer, Erskine Gwynne, who founded a monthly magazine in Paris by the same name.  To quote Paul Clarke from Serious Eats,  "This isn't a Negroni. It is, however, the Negroni's long-lost autumnal cousin." We hope you enjoy! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online! Instagram ---> @ staynfocusimages
