Who doesn’t love a great cocktail? Especially one as balanced as this one. That is why I named it the balanced Boulevardier cocktail recipe.
So, one of the fun things about the Boulevardier cocktail is that it’s a great aperitif.
The Boulevardier is a close cousin to the Negroni. The difference between them is the Negroni calls for gin, while the Boulevardier calls for scotch.
So, for all you scotch lovers out there, this is the cocktail for you!
The thing that rocks about this cocktail is if you forget how to make it, just remember 1:1:1. That means equal parts of the three ingredients.
Do you enjoy drinking aperitifs? Also, what about digestifs?
By the way, do you even know the difference between the two? As the words suggest, an aperitif helps stimulate the appetite, hence a digestif helps with digestion.
Here are a few examples of an apertif:
- The Negroni
- Sweet or dry vermouth
Here are a few examples of a digestif:
- Port wine
How to mix the boulevardier
Also cut a lemon twist out of a lemon. Either use a channeling knife or cut a lemon wheel and take out the flesh. Set aside.
Gather the ingredients – scotch, campari and sweet vermouth.
Add 1 ounce of scotch, 1 ounce of Campari and 1 ounce of sweet vermouth.
Cap the cocktail shaker and shake for 15 seconds.
Strain the Boulevadier cocktail into the glass and take the lemon rind and twist it over the cocktail and rub it on rim of the glass.
Add the twist into the Boulevardier cocktail!
It’s a beautiful color isn’t it?
