Boulevardier

This series highlights the International Bartenders Association (IBA) The Unforgettables cocktails. I have decided to work my way through this series of cocktails to investigate the classics as I teach myself mixology and build out my home bar.

This is one of the biggies in the cocktail world. Given the Campari, I was leary approaching this one. But like many things, familiarity brings about fondness. Of the three different cocktails I have had with Campari (Negroni and the Americano being the others), this was the most pleasing. Perhaps Campari is groing on me or perhaps these cocktails are getting better. 🙂

I enjoyed this. I used Rittenhouse rye to make this. From what I gather, rye is the current preferred whiskey to use in this cocktail.
